Good morning and welcome crafty peeps!
It's Photo Week over at JUST US GIRLS! Vicki is your hostess
this time around and she's picked this super adorable teapot image
for you to be inspired by.
Here's my take on it:
and the inside:
I started by sprinkling Magenta Nuance dye powders in turquoise and grass green onto some water color paper and spritzed with water. Dried and repeated to be sure to get a big enough area to die cut the butterfly from. To follow the colors of the butterfly image, I tapped some orange and yellow powders onto my craft mat, sprayed with some water, and painted those sparingly along some of the edges. Dried again and outlined everything with Crystal Stickles. While that was drying, I die cut the solid butterfly and body from black card stock, and the circle frame from white. For the card base, I lightly sponged some green ink through a stencil to add some interest. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto a vellum banner and adhered everything to the card base, Another sentiment
finishes the inside of my card.
Now it's your turn! What about this photo grabs you? Why not make something and
link it up at Just Us Girls?! We'd love to see it. For more ideas, please visit the blogs of
my teammates and our Guest Designer, Nance Salkeld, and leave some bloggy love!
