Butterflies & Tulips
One of my GOALS for 2015 is to take part in more challenges. I am in two between now and Valentine's Day. Well, this one is a SWAP and the other is a SECRET SISTER but they both are forcing me to MAKE TIME to PLAY. Something I did very little of in 2014.
This morning these 6 cards will wing their way to CO and our wonderful hostess, Susan.
Today's card is for the 'Friends' swap on SCS. Because my supplies are a bit scattered at the moment (Come back tomorrow for WOYWW to see what I mean) I had to cut the ovals by hand. I hated that but the best i could do at this point. I did not think about inaccessability when I joined the swap. And though they look a bit off here, they actually turned out nice in reality.
I CASed this card from MrsBoz on SCS. You can see the original (which is her CAS lol) HERE Also, please take a few moments to check out her blog HERE.
My kitchen stove covered with a cutting board became embossing/ cutting central with my Vagabond. The tulips are watercolored.
Here's the Recipe:
A2 Card base embossed with Starry Night
Mats are cut from SU Island Indigo
Stamp Sets: SU Dear Friend and Simple Florals
Derwent WC Pencils: Grass Green/ Sap Green/ Dark Violet/ Deep Vermillion/ Deep Cadnium
Butterflies punched with the SU small punch from Tan Floral Tapestry by Paper Pizzaz
I then added tear drop bling from Studio G/ Spotted Canary
