Creating Diva Butterflies...

Hiya!

Weird post title I know but I had a chance to play along with two new (to me!) challenges today - Create with Connie & Mary (a sketch) and the Diva Coffee Break challenge (a colour challenge). Here's what I came up with:



This is much more my 'cup of tea' than yesterday's attempt!! I LOVE these colours together (Baja Breeze, River Rock, Rose Red and Not Quite Navy - all will be available in the new catalogue in October). I used the little butterfly a-la-carte stamp in the mini catalogue and coloured with blender pens then painted with shimmer paint for a lovely shimmery effect. I added rhinestone brads to the body for extra bling! The Baja Breeze panel was stamped with the Medallion background stamp and the River Rock panel was stamped with the Friendly background stamp. The sentiment is another a-la-carte stamp - love the cute font! I added some white taffetta ribbon to finish things off.

Thanks for stopping by...
