Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 302)

It has been a long time, but here I am back at a 365 cards challenge. Today is Super Sketchy Sunday and you can see my card above and the sketch below it. A while ago I found some bags of Crayola Model Magic in my studio and one must have been punctured as it was hard as a brick from air drying. The others were still soft so I decided to have a clay play day and I got out molds and charms and played to my heart's content. The hummingbird was one of those creations, made with a flexible mold from Sweet Briar Studio, then colored with old Radiant Pearls and then made even shinier with Pearl-ex. I experimented using two different Cuttlebug embossing folders on the card base, one in just the upper right hand corner took some manipulation using the Sizzix Big Shot, but I think it really pumped up the "3-Dness" (is that a word?) of the card. If you click on the photo of the card you can really get a better idea of how 3-D it really appears.
