I used a Heidi Swapp butterfly mask and inked over it. I then took some Shimmerz and brushed that on. Stamped the title with StazOn ink. The black card stock was edged using my Fiscars scissors  and a Hambly overlay finishes off the page. Quick, simple fun. The photo was taken at the Fireworks Festival last year. Scyap Inc. did the face painting. They were amazing.

Butterfly Card

I create cards very seldom. I just don't enjoy designing them. I don't know why. :) There are 3 photos of this card. I wanted to show how much dimension and texture was on it. I began by stamping the swirls with black archival ink. Then I stamped the butterfly 3 times. Once on the card base and twice on white card stock using Adirondack dye ink. I applied Rock Candy Distress crackle paint the the 2 stamps on the card stock. As you can see from the photo the ink did bleed a little. After the paint was dry I cut the butterflies out and pop dotted one over the butterfly that had been stamped on the card base. I then cut the second butterfly in half and pop dotted the only the top half on to the card. A little Stickles on the antennae and it was finished.

15 000 Visitors and a Layout

WOOHOO!!!! I can't believe that in my 3 short years of blogging I've had that many people come to visit me. Wow! Thank you so much. I will be doing something to celebrate so make sure to check back. Now onto my LO. I used Little Yellow Bicycle papers. I love their stuff so much fun to make boy pages with. It's a clean and simple LO. A little distressing and inking and it was done. The weekend we went camping last summer was cold and rainy. We had to wear our winter jackets. :) The kids really wanted to go swimming so with the first and only break in the weather we headed to the beach. Wolf turn a lovely shade of red with underlying hues of blue.
