STAMPlorations May Theme & Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
It's the month of May, and that means it's time for
We are starting back with the 5 separate challenges...sort of!
All challenges have the same theme: Winged Things. Simply make
something incorporating something with wings for any (or all!)
of the challenges for a chance at winning some goodies!
This month's Theme & Sketch has no sketch, just the theme,
so anything goes with wings on it!

Here's the card I made:

and the inside:

I started by adding red, yellow, and blue inks directly onto the 
spritzing with water, and laying some white card stock over it, lightly pressing
around the mask. The water let's the inks blend with each other. 
I lifted the card off and splattered some watered down red and yellow inks.
Once dry, I cut the panel to size, then stamped over some of the butterfly shapes
using the Trendy Butterflies set using the same blue ink. The sentiment was
stamped using the Trendy Butterflies 2 set. The inside panel was stamped using
the Blossom Overture set, then both panels were adhered to a navy blue card base.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all create with wings! Don't forget
to link up at the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch Challenge for a chance
at winning some awesome prizes!
