Good afternoon. What a damp miserable day it has been all day - so the best course of action was to hide away in my lovely little crafty haven and have a good old crafty play :o)
I was sooooo very very lucky this week to have won these scrummilicious goodies:
Helen's 4th Blogoversary Candy
Here's what I bought :o)
So I'd like to say a mahoosive THANK YOU to you all for your very kind generosity :o)
I had a little play with the Sheena Douglass Silhouette Grasses stamps I got from Natalie & Amy's and here's what I came up with:
I started with a plain piece of white card and inked it with Fired Brick, Dried Marigold and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks - I like these rich Autumnal colours - and then spritzed it with some water.
Then I stamped the corner swirl image from the set using Flitter Glu and added some Gilding Flakes.
I also stamped the main floral image and one of the sentiments from the set using the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
I added a few Martha Stewart punched butterflies - coloured with the Distress Inks and a few adhesive pearls added to the centres.
The background for the image topper was made using co-ordinating cardstock panels embossed with my favourite butterfly embossing folder and my new Couture Creations 'Tied Together' embossing folder with a little scrummy gold ruffled edge ribbon.
