Butterfly Baby - Saturated Canary


Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my new followers Rita, Hilde and Karal thank you for taking the time to join my site and I hope you like what you see.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh was I naughty yesterday. I tuned in to see Create and Craft at the CHA and couldn't resist ordering the 10 new sets of Spellbinders ( a girl just can't have enough dies ).  Love the new Stamp It dies from Crafter's companion but only ordered one.... I have so many images I haven't used yet I am trying to hold back on getting new ones.  My new Flex markers arrived yesterday and they really do fill in some gaps in the range, especially the new orangey red ones and some purple tones.  The joy of being single... I can buy what I like :)

Anyway onto today's card which is an image I bought when it first came out and have finally used, it Butterfly Baby from the talented Krista.  She has the sweetest expression, love her.



She is cut using a SP circle large mounted onto a new Joy Crafts die that I can't remember the name of and it isn't on the packaging. The corners are also JC. The little heart on a ribbon is one of the new MB dies but I shortened the ribbon. Leaves are a MS punch. Backing paper from Nitwits (teatime I think), flowers from WOC, sentiment from Whimsy and pearls from my stash.


She is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I added distress ink and a little stickles to her wings.


The inside reflects the front.


I am entering the following challenges :-


Thanks for taking the time to look. Hope you're having a great weekend. Will be back later to check out your blogs (need some lunch).
