Things with wings in July

Good morning and welcome to July. Summer really is in full swing now and it is ​of course time for a brand new challenge over at Country View Crafts. It's an exciting one for me as I am the hostess for this month. I have chosen for my theme "things with wings". I really hope to see lots of lovely projects shared over at the challenge blog and I will visit every entry even if I don't get a chance to comment. I will also be on the look out for my Top 3 and a DT special mention.

I thought I would try to give some extra things with wings ideas for you on my blog today. All the photos were taken by me and some are from my recent holiday.

One of your first thoughts at this time of the year might be............

or perhaps butterflies......or bees

or birds?

but don't forget fantasy  wings too....

dragons....unicorns  or cherubims

or angels (you could make a start on your Christmas cards)...yes I have said the C word V ;0)

 Perhaps the wings of a car..or a large house?

 Or an aeroplane?

I decided for my first share today to be slightly different and make a male card and to use planes as my things with wings....and not real planes...but paper planes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ƒ
First I stamped a background using the VI scripted streets stamps and added some gold embossing paste through a stencil.
When this had dried I added some more script stamping and a little more ink and distressed the background.
I die cut a weather clock and used the Turn back time sentiment
I then stamped and fussy cut out my paper planes. 
Mine are the brilliant Visible Image paper planes stamps from the Destination Unknown set which Country View is now stocking with free UK postage. 

I then put on my creative hat to put together my things with wings card, which has flown down to sell at Dotty's.
