Rosetta - Sylvia Zet - Wee Stamps

Good morning everyone I finally managed to get another card finished. This has been a drag of a week for me I changed my diabetic medication last week (next step the dreaded needle) and I'm really having lots of up's and down's. Sorry I haven't been round to visit, but will be catching up today.
When I saw the new releases from Sylvia Zet I had to have them and so enjoyed colouring this one up. She's 'Rosetta', another of Sylvia's gorgeous faries.

She is cut using SB Grand Decorative Circles one, layered onto a Grand Circle. The LOTV sentiment is mounted onto a Stately Circle and the large butterfly is also a SB. The small one is a Joy Crafts. Flowers, lace, ribbon and pearl string from WOC. Leaves are a MS punch and DP from Nitwits. Everything mounted onto Bazzill basics.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, and I added some liquid pearls to the flower stamens. I also added stickles to her wings and distress ink to the edges.

My Frantage embossing powder finally arrived and I added it to the leaves, flowers and butterflies............ love it and can see it being used lots more. I also got to use my Letrajet air brush again as I didn't have the right colour blue rose so inked up  white ones.

The inside does reflect the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look, hope you have a great weekend

Hi Eileen another stunning card from you! I thought I could spy some Frantage when I was having a close look!! I have been playing with it too this week but in the early hours of the morning, boy does it get everywhere, even heating it from beneath! Hope your medication does the trick!! Just give me 5 minutes notice so I can get the steam iron plugged in!!!! Hugs Susan x

Morning Kid, just stopped by to see what you have been doing and all I can say is WOW!, what a stunning card. I absolutely love your choice of dies - perfection as always and the flowers, I love how they match with the image. You are so thoughtful in your work, you really inspire me to want to make better cards.
I am working on another box at the moment, it was going to be a storage box for my Copic refills until I tried to store one in it and found that the box wasn't tall enough by about 3mm!! So now it's going to be a stamp box.
Anyhoo, hope you have a great week,
take care,
