I'm just thrilled to create again for my favorite challenge blog: http://www.theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com/. It really gets my creative juices flowing, and I love using chipboard, so I was excited about creating this project. Here are the pieces I used:
Some Tim Holtz (butterfly wings and oval...I LOVE HIS STUFF!) and a piece from a wonderful JoAnn Fabrics set that is no longer available.
Each piece was altered a little differently:
- On the oval, I added glue and paper and inked edges then backed with contrasting paper.
2. On the wings, I painted, stamped in Fresh Snow, stamped with VersaMark, and embossed with clear glittered powder, then inked image and edges.3. On the flourish, I painted, inked and embossed with same powder.
The papers are so, SO pretty(BoBunny - Jazmyne)!! My dear friend, Susan, got them for me (along with the seam binding from Etsy's MemrieMare - Sugared Grape and Easter Meadow) for Mother's day. Is that the SWEETEST gift, or WHAT. I LOVE it all! The colors are gorgeous!! I HAD to make a couple seam binding flowers to embellish. I really like the way they turned out!
...put everything together in lots of layers...even got some matching thread!! I know...it's a little overdone...I got carried away with the papers and ribbons...I'll tame down the next one! Hope you can take a little something away from it you like!
Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear from you all...seems like it's been a long time!!
Have a great rest of the weekend!!
