Torn paper challenge for Paige Taylor Evans

 Hey Ho, two posts in one week, now that's a surprise!

I was inspired to use some scraps of paper from the Paige Taylor Evans, "Take the Scenic Route" collection. I think they enhance the less than perfect photo of my smallest Grand Girl.

Because she loved these windmills in our garden so much, I wanted to record her enjoyment of them on a page for her album.

The cut file is also from Paige Taylor Evans and it's called Pin Wheel.
Thanks for calling in and for any message you may care to leave.
Keep safe and Happy Easter.

Butterfly Card - for the Card Concept Competition 151

Hello Crafty Friends

It's been so long since I blogged anything that I'm feeling a little ashamed of myself.   I have created and uploaded pages to various sites, but just haven't managed the blogging.

The card today is for a lovely competition over at 

The Card Concept

I was inspired by the pink and purple colours and the green background.

I chose to work in the mixed media style.

I love butterflies and am thrilled that we've been able to attract some Monarchs back into our garden by planting Buddleia bushes.

 I used a Sizzix thinlits die #665201 to cut the butterfly.

 I used Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac to colour the butterfly and some gold embossing powder to highlight the wing tips.

The water colour base was first stamped in Versamark with Pink Fresh, "Lush Vines" stamp.   When totally dry, I applied Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Speckled Egg, Broken China and Shabby Shutters.

Thanks for calling in today, I hope your creating is going well.
