Pretty dull day yesterday but today is looking up I won over at Ippity Challenges last week and so today I’m gonna spend that voucher …. it may take me a while as they do such lovely stamps. Well enough about that here’s the LO I created from the inspirational photo over at The Ribbon Reel for their DT call- I’ve never been in a DT before and I Think nows the time to give it a go … well you never know.
The sketch is from Frosted Designs…
I’mquite pleased with it- I even showed the other half and I only do that when I feel that he should pretend he’s interested.
I used core’dinations card in a very light peach for my base, the patterned papers I used are from the Gabrielle collection from BoBunny- these papers are soooo beautiful I think I need another pad of it so I don’t feel guilty when I use a piece. I distressed the edges of all the papers by running my craft knife along the edges of the papers and then curling them over with my nails- I love this effect as it’s distressed but doesn’t need to go counselling. Before adding copious amounts of flowers I stamped the butterflies from the Unity set ‘dream big’ up the right hand side of the photo (you can just see them poking through the flowers).
The blue butterfly I cut from one of the Gabrielle papers, then I gave him a bling flight path… hehe he’s soo cute (oh and as I cut his antener off I gave him some new one’s).
I this photo the pink flowers are from Keiser Craft, the white felt one’s from Prefectly Precocious, the blue one I made with my own fair hands and the same goes for the large white one that I made out of tumble dryer sheets and a pearl for the middle. oh and the other two are from my stash.
This huge pearl flower I made out of a necklace- I love a good bit old recycling.
Well I think I’ve gone on enough now so enjoy your day!!!!
