BC218: Winged Things

There are many things with wings and many in my stamp stash, how do you choose just one?  For our blogger's challenge today I chose to use Creations2Fill set from The {Stamps}of Life with the dragonfly. I paired it with some funky backgrounds called animals4prints and then added some glossy accents to the wings.  


I used my quilling experience (he he) to make the antenna as I really wanted it to stand out against the leopard print.  The body and wings are all popped up using dimensionals.

Want to join us this week?  Just link up to your winged creation below or on any of the blogs with the link feature.
