Ciao a tutti! L'aria di primavera  su Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog si sente parecchio e questa settimana per la  nostra sfida a tema , THINGS WITH WINGS, mi sono fatta ispirare proprio dalla stagione che sta arrivando! Non c'è bisogno che vi dica quante possibilità interpretative avete per questo argomento!
Questa è l'ultima settimana per la nostra Designer Spotlight di questo mese, Linda Kunsman aka Heartfully inspired, è stato un piacere averla con noi in questo periodo!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Thanks for all of your fabulous entries into the ‘Layer It Up’ Challenge and we hope you will join in this week too!
This week we are challenging you to create Things With Wings.
This is Linda’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight ands we would like to say a big thank you for all of your creations over the past few weeks. We have really enjoyed having you along with us.

La serie di esperimenti prosegue e oggi ho voluto creare un progetto 3D, l'ispirazione me l'ha data il timbro che usato del set Mini Motivation di Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous. Adoro tutti i set Motivation!
Ho pensato alle opportunità come contenitori da cui tirare fuori qualcosa e le bottigliette Idea-ology erano perfette. Le nuove Dolls sono fantastiche e far sedere una di queste sulle bottigliette è stato un collegamento mentale immediato!
Per dare colore al vetro ho usato gli Alcohol inks, non mi chiedete quali, perchè i colori sono frutto di mix vari!

The series of experiments continues and today I wanted to create a 3D project, I've taken my  inspiration from  Mini Motivation stamps set by Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous. I love all Motivation sets!
I thought about the opportunities as containers from which to pull out something and Idea-ology bottles were perfect. New Dolls are fantastic and  put  one of these on the bottles was an immediate mental connection!
To give color to the glass I used Alcohol inks, don't ask me what, because the colors you see  are the result of various mix!

Le farfalle sono tutte colorate  con Distress Oxides  ( anche le azzurre!) e tagliate con la Decorative strip Frenzy Butterflies e la classica Butterfly Movers & shapers. Con gli stessi colori ho preparato anche la base su cui ho timbrato  Mini Motivation con Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink Pad Dark Chocolate Brown.

I've  colored  my butterflies with Distress Oxides  ( also the blue butterflies!) and I  cut them  using the strip Sizzix Tim Holtz Butterfly Frenzy Decorative strip and  Mini butteflies Movers and shapers. With the same colors I also prepared the base on which I stamped  Mini Motivation with Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink Pad Dark Chocolate Brown.

Vi lascio un piccolo trucco che uso quando devo incollare i fili di metallo all'interno di qualcosa di stretto come le bottigliette.
Con un filo di metallo creo una piccola spirale con la pinza , piego il filo in modo che la spirale faccia da base e incollo con la colla a caldo! 

This is  a little trick I use when I have to glue the metal wires in something tight as the hole of the bottles. I create a small spiral with  metal wire and pliers, I fold the wire, so in this way the spiral becomes the base  to  paste with hot glue!

Per la base ho creato una piccola scatola con Vignette box e relativo Vignette panel, poi l'ho ricoperta con un foglio di patterned paper dal pad Lost and Found.
Ho schiarito il colore con uno strato di Picked fence Distress paint e ho evidenziato i contorni con Evergreen bough Distress Crayons.

I created my base with a  Vignette and its panel, then I covered it  with a sheet of patterned paper from  Lost and Found pad..
I've lightened the color with a layer of Picked fence Distress paint  and I highlighted the edges with Evergreen bough  Distress Crayons.
