Wings Ain't What They Used to Be!

Don't you just hate it when the one-eyed flying cyclops hearts you've been keeping in an old bird cage finally chew their way out?  I know I do!  That's why, when I saw that this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Things With Wings" I decided to work through my frustration by making a piece about it!  :)  I know lots of you out there have the same problem, so believe me when I say I feel your pain! lol

This actually took me quite a few days to make, simply because I'm the world's slowest cutter-out!  All of the detail in the wings seemed to take forever to do, but it was worth it in the end :)

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

I love your sense of humour Dan and your piece is so fabulously unique thats why I like it so much. The wings were so worth all the time you spent cutting them out. A great piece of ART. Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

Dan...your piece is so "artsy" and fabulous! I totally love it! As usual, your use of vibrant color is so striking! The broken cage and the one eyed winged hearts escaping...where do you come up with this stuff? I'd love to be a gnat in your artistic brain for a while to see all of these wonderfully artistic things swirling around in there! <3 Candy

"giggle"...are they still fluttering free?

Great fun piece Dan and I so know where you are coming from with the cutting out - but it looks so effective.
