It's the second week of Art Impressions Challenge 231 - Winged Things!! AI has a few NEW stamps and dies sets called Flutters! A new line of interactive cards!!

My card features the Owl Flutter card. I started by stamping and coloring the owl images and wings, using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Pencils and an alcohol blender pen. Then I used the matching dies to cut out the images.

I'm not going to go into detail about how to assemble the owl, the set comes with directions and AI has a video that can help with assembly.

After assembly my owl I cut a small square card base with a square die. With a smaller die, I cut a panel of white cardstock. Then I cut a piece of scrap paper with a cloud border die and use that paper to mask off some clouds. I used Distress ink to ink the clouds, moving the cloud paper down and over for each row. Then I added some water to the ink and splatter a bit of blue randomly.

When the splatter was dry I stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner. Then I made a slit in the panel so I could thread my Pull strip through the slit and down so it peeked out at the bottom edge. I used foam tape to make a 'track' for the strip and of course, added more foam tape to the rest of the panel.

I adhered the panel to my blue square card base. And now I can pull or push on the strip to make the wings go up or down. This pic is of them down:
