Cupcake Challenge 133

Hello everyone, today over on Cupcake Challenge 133 we have a theme of up in the air with the added option of green. This week we are sponsored by our regular sponsor, Digi Doodle Shop who are giving us a $10 gift certificate as a prize. I am also entering this card into the following challenges; Just Magnolia & Hanglar Challenge 87 have a sketch to follow, and this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge has a theme of anything goes.

For my card I have used Colibri from the Magnolia Pet Collection 2009 and I have coloured it with copics. For the wings and tail I used a technique called feather blending and where the yellow and blue colours overlapped, they formed the green area. The DP is from basic grey and the ribbon, butons and jewels are from my stash.

This month our icing on the cupcake prize is sponsored by Wild Rose Studio who are giving us two gorgeous stamps as a prize, and all you have to do is enter at least one of our challenges this month to be in with a chance to win.

Finally, we are having a DT call over at Cupcake Craft Challenges, please see the details below.....
