Defying Gravity - Songbird Challenges

I can't believe that we are already on challenge #4 over at Songbird Challenges. It seemed like such a long wait till we started on 6th August and now look where we are!!

This week the song I chose was Defying Gravity from it hit musical 'Wicked'. So, for the challenge we want to see cards featuring things that have wings/can fly.

For my card, I used this fab image from Saturated Canary called Elphie - the main character from Wicked is called Elphaba so I am pretty sure Krista has based this one on her. So here she is ..

The sentiment is a line that I have taken from Defying Gravity, thought it went quite well with the theme of flying! I coloured Elphie in with my ProMarkers and distressed the edges with Pitch Black Adirondack ink. Everything is matted onto kraft and the backing paper is from the Fall collection from Designed to Delight. The butterflies were punched with a Kars punch and I used some Hobby House pearls to finish.

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you over at Songbird Challenges with your gravity defying creations! Our sponsor this week is Di's Digis so there are $10 worth of digis up for grabs!!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Love this card. Wicked is my favourite musical and defying gravity my favourite song from it. I saw it on Broadway on my honeymoon in 2006 and then went to the westend in 2007. Would love to see it again xxx

  2. Fabulous card Laura, love the image and your fabulous colouring. We took our daughter to see Wicked a couple of years ago in the West End for Christmas instead of a panto.
