Things with Wings

My buddy Lori from I been thinkin' 'bout Inkin' is a member of the Simon Says Stamp Design Team.  How cool is that?  And thanks to her, I've discovered the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog with their funky new challenge(s).  I can't say "challenges" because this is their first one.  You know, that's how I've found everyone I admire and learn from in blogland.  One person I vist tells me about another tells me about another and so on.  Like that old shampoo commercial, if anyone remembers.  ANYHOO,  over at Simon Says Stamp and Show they have offered us the prompt of "Things with Wings".  This is my contribution.  A papier mache mannequin (for some obscure reason, my mom would always call the mannequin a "bust"), which I sponged all over while watching TV, with assorted run-of-the-mill shiny paints.  The wings are some AWESOME German scrap I found (and got so excited when I saw them, I hyper-ventilated).  I covered it with rub-ons, a heart, a chain from my jewelry fixin's and charms.  Oh.  Bling.  Gotta have bling.  I know, I know, that doesn't really tell you anything about the products I used, but it's all I got.  If you're really curious, come to my house.  Maybe you can figure it out.

There you have it.

BTW I know it's Wordless Wednesday, but I was feeling particularly wordy tonight.
