Allsorts Challange 6

Time for Allsorts Challenge 6 and super dupa blog candy as this weeks prize for one very lucky winner, courtesy of our sponsors Sir Stampalot - read on.It's my turn to select the theme this week and it probably won't be too much of a surprise to some of you that I have selected "Wings", any sort of wings from butterflies to planes, it's up to you just create what makes you happy.

So on to the exciting bit ........ as usual there is a prize for the winner and I will also be selecting my top five from all your entries ........ but we are all so excited about the prize on offer this week as it's definitely no ordinary candy ........ OK yes, I'll stop waffling and cut to the chase - can you believe that we have on offer a Quickutz Squeeze Tool with the Essential Tools Collection. Our sponsors Sir Stampalot have very generously donated this prize so even more reason to enter our challenge this week and also to say a huge, huge thank you from us all to Andy and Janice of Sir Stampalot. And as a little bonus, because it's my birthday this week I will be sending a 'wing' themed RAK to my selected Top 5.
Now, on to my DT card, the image is a stamp from an Australian company called Stamp-It which I am told can't be re-ordered, so I won't temp you by giving the codes. It is such a beautiful frame I felt it needed little embellishment and have very simply stamped it twice with versafine black and embossed with detail clear onto a mottled light green cardstock and mounted onto a piece of matt grey/green mirri card. I cut the center of the frame away and stamped Penny Black 3940F into the aperture with Stayzon black.

The frame and butterflies have been painted with Twinkling H2o's and the butterflies from the second frame cut out and decoupaged with wire antenna added and gems for the thorax.
