Butterfly dreams

This is another card I made recently... this one is for a buddy overseas and is on its way to her as I type...

For this card  I used  Stampin' Up! products to build the background and stamp and punch the butterflies but the wording is from Off She Flew one of the new stamp sets by Leonie Pujol.

I was pleased with how it came out.

Until next time

This card was made for a buddy who likes pink and girly things.

For this card I used stamps from Leonie Pujol's new range. The main image is from the set called "Just Be" and the wording is from another set called "Off She Flew" . The background swirls are a stamp from VLVS latest 2016 collections.

I deliberately chose not to colour anything but her lips and I used a Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle to her eyes, hair and wings...which sadly does not show up in the photo...but it is definitely there.

Hopefully my buddy will like the card.
Until next time

I made this card specifically for an awesome little boy I know.

The background was painted with Brushos and matt gel medium (no water) . The Houses of Parliament is a Paper Artsy stamp and I used archival black,. The boy with a cape is one of my favourites from  VLVS and the  sentiment is one from a set by Stampin' Up!

The recipient lives over 5,000 miles away and the last time we saw him  he was wearing green wellies so I stamped an extra pair in green and added versamark and clear embossing powder to give that shiny green welly effect.

It was a fun card to make for a special kiddo. I hope he likes it.

Until next time
