The challenge at Southern Girls Challenge Blog is “Brads, Gems or Dew Drops” Well I opted for gems as I had some beautiful Prima swirls just waiting to be used and I even opened up my DCWV Mariposa paper pack which has been stored in the “too nice to use” section of my stash!
I started by inking a paper doily with blue and gold ink pads, distressed the edges of the butterfly paper and cut out the two larger butterflies from another sheet of the paper. I inked the Tim Holtz birdcage with a gold ink pad and added a few sticky back gems and then added the Prima gems around it. The title is chipboard letters covered with PVA glue and dipped in gold glitter – well, that was messy – I’ve hoovered twice and the glitter is nearly gone – I really shouldn’t craft in the lounge!
I would like to enter my layout in the following challenges;
