whispers of love !!

hi
I loved making this card. first i brayered the small card with big and juicy 'hydrangea', then stamped it with ELUSIVE IMAGES butterfly.I then highlighted the butterfly with gold gel pen.
I then added some jewels to the body.Then i flicked water onto the image
and blotted with a tissue.I then matted and layered it.
I then inked the surface of the card with stampin up torquoise ink,stamped the little black butterflies and again went around them with gold gel pen in tiny dots.I made the torquoise roses with a craft punch and also dotted them with gold gel pen.All in all a very nice card !!!I've entered this into these challenges.

MARIANNE FANCY FRAME

hi
This is a 'marianne creatables' die cut frame!!
I used two frames,the smallest and the largest.I
managed to slice them down the middle and rearrange the pieces to make a new shaped frame!!
It actually looks like a buckle.Its amazing what you
can come up with when you play about !!!

angelina butterfly

Brayered background circle with hydrangea big and juicy inkpad.Then embossed and cut out parchment.The pattern on the parchment was embossed with a pergamano circular grid, a very pretty and delicate design !
The angelina butterfly was an elusive images stamped image!
I hope this inspires you to have a little go !!
