I finally had time to create today- Yeah! I am such in a floral mood lately- and I also got a chance to play with some new paints made by Creative Inspirations.
This card also qualifies for a few challenges: Clear Dollar Stamps- Green , and Stamp Something-Green and Cream, Tanda Teaser-Simply Spring and Charisma-Beautiful ButterfliesToday is our Bloggers Challenge "Mom's" Birthday celebration- Happy Birthday Lisa! It is also a Birthday at Gingersnap, where they asked for Frosting on your card- I frosted my butterflies with a 2nd layer and CI paints-link below. I used a new Sketch challenge put out by Pamela at FCD- love the way it worked out! I stamped the butterfly 6 times and cut out three of them, attached just the center section so they are dimensional. The BG is called Brayered Brilliance from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter- all in SU greens and Brilliance Gold inks. Stamps are Firecracker Designs by Pamela (Sitting Pretty, Butter/Dragon Fly, and the ATC set 2009) and SU sentiment.
Creative Inspirations- they are wonderfully shimmery- I painted them on, but you can use them in many ways- dabbed on, add to water in a mister and mist it on- use like Radiant Pearls or any Mica product to get shimmer on your card. I will be storing them in small clam shell boxes where I can very easily visualize the colors.
I have been very blessed with winnings lately- I keep hearing-"go buy a lottery ticket"!!! Last week, I also posted cards from all of my blogging sisters, plus one I sent to Joanne, and I won the prize at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential- 4 digital images from In Style Stamps. Thanks to Saturday Spotlight and In Style stamps- I have not picked my images yet.
