CARD Sentimental for Emma

Hi all! ... another card.  This was Emma's birthday card :) 

I used the Sentimental Flower Doodledallion set ( a pre-coloured yellow flower ), alcohol inks on the scalloped square. I also used an Ornate Butterfly.  Emma loves my "fancy" cards and wants to own every one I make - " Can I have it Mom? Can I have it - Please?"  LOL I have put this one back in my sample box... let's see how long it takes her to realize I "scooped" it ;)  ( I'll give it back  :)  )

Emma asked for Stickles for her  9th birthday and also did some damage at the LSS with her birthday money.. she has amassed quite a collection of arts & crafts supplies and I made her a watercolour journal.  We are going to work on our Art Journals this summer.  We have watercolours, pastels, watercolour crayons... and gel mediums and gesso  ( black, white and clear ) we should have fun!  She has been colouring and glittering up the butterflies as well... they look fabulous!

Card Ornate Butterfly

Hi all!  ...just posting some cards I have been working on :) .. another one tomorrow.   I have been totally obsessed these critters lately!


I  printed (laser print on thin card) the digi sheet from the Ornate Cut-Out Butterfly set and coloured and cut the largest butterfly on the sheet.  I did alot of playing and experimenting LOL!  First, I coloured with a blue Neocolor II water soluble crayon ( just on the inner edge of wings ) and blended out with a waterbrush.  I carefully used my glue pen  on the coloured areas of the wings.  I glittered with Glamour Dust.  Now here is where I a bit crazy!...  I got my little quilt/craft iron and melted bees wax pellets all over the butterfly and evened it out with a blast of my heat tool, it gave a neat translucency to the wings and toned the glitter down a bit ( it also moved the glitter into the black oops.. but I still like the look.. next time I'll coat it with UTEE instead ).  The wax also stiffened the wings a bit so they stay in their fluttering position ;)


The background is alcohol inks and  I used EK Success punches. This is another alcohol inked background I had made a while ago and now I WISH I would have wrote down what colours I used! LOL

Have a great day!

Sentimental Flower Doodledallion Set

Hi everyone!

New in the Store - Sentimental Flower Doodledallion Set!  There are 4 variations ( 2 with a paper pricking pattern) and 11 sentiments :)  I have also included in this set 3 add-on pre-coloured sheets ( 9 colours of flower petals in all).  I thought about a full coloured set but due to the complexity and variations, this was the best option putting them both together. 

Here is a card I made:


The flower is layered and it was coloured with watercolour pencils blended  with a dove blender pen over a very pale yellow copic marker base.

Have a great day!
