To create the background it was a five step process :) I inked white PI paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in colour milled lavender, then I stamped it with HA Cling stamp Flourish Background in colour dusty concord. Next I stamped the paper with HA Cling stamp Floating Flowers in colour broken china and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Accents of white dots were added with my white Galaxy Marker.
HA Cling stamp Butterflies were coloured using my Copics and coated with Ranger Glossy Accents.
I don't think I have ever made such a dark card, but I am OK with it :) Just have to find the right person to send it to!
Have a wonderful day!

I just can't help myself....I've made another card for Lucy's Colour Challenge #1. Have I mentioned that I LOVE these colours together!!!! This card is a real combination of products :) I'm almost out of my hand spun, dyed crochet flowers...time to make up a new batch. I think they work well for these vintage style cards, but that's it! Best find lately are these crystal swirls from the DOLLAR store....love that place!!
Well I NEED to do some sort of exercise today....and it is RAINING again!!!! So I think I will hit the bike trainer ahhhhhh. Now that I have typed it, I have to do it.....right?! Hope you can fit some sort of exercise in your day today too :)
Have a fantastic day!!!

Oh how I LOVE this colour challenge!! I think these are Lucy's favorite colours? Over on Donna Mikasa's blog, she has a link to a tutorial about combining your Copics with your Prisma's and Gamsol. I was feeling guilty about not laying one hand on my Prisma's since the Copics have come into my life lol! Thanks to Donna I am now quilt free....
Have a fantastic weekend eveyone!!!

Card Patterns for another GLITTER card challenge at Hero Arts.
All stamps are Hero Arts :)
I used Zing red glitter embossing powder for the Old Letter Writing stamp S4878. My Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen was used on the Flourish Background stamp G119 , around my new Nestabilties Label 8, and around my Shapeabilities Labels Trio that has CL342 Everyday Sayings stamp. Finally, I used Pearlizing medium mixed with LuminAtre and water to cover the white areas around the Wallpaper Flower K5185 stamp. Stamp CG130 Butterflies has Glossy Accents covering it....LOVE this stuff too!!!!
Have a WONDERFUL day!!

Since Triathlon season is over most of my upcoming posts will be about cards and scrapbooking. This weeks challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog is to incorporate glitter into a card of any theme. http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/ Still thinking about this one, hopefully will have a card to post in a couple of days.
Have a great day,
