Have you seen this weeks challenge over at the Hero Arts blog...? If not I would check it out as they have some super duper giveaways thanks to Quickutz. The challenge this week is to use a diecut on your project and if you use a Quickutz diecut then bonus you get a double chance to win the main prize. I don't own any Quickutz dies yet lol! That could change by Sunday! Anyhow, this is my first entry this week. I hope to have another go and possibly maybe a scrapbook page..?
I used my Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge for my die cut shape. I'm so in love with this shape haha! The sentiment is 'a warm hello' in case you can't quite make it out. I so need to improve on my photography skills!! Below is a close up of the butterfly to show how I doubled it up to give the effect of fluttering wings!
Card Stock: SU! Choc Chip & Bordering Blue
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics, HA Warm Hello C4496, Heart Winged Butterfly F5158, Design Block ButterflyS5041
Ink: StazOn Opaque, SU! Bordering Blue & Choc Chip
Accessories: Anchor Linen Twine, Gold Pearl Gems, Foam Dots, Spica Clear Pen, SU! Old olive Pen.
It's hard to see in the photo as it is very subtle, but I have added twinkling to the butterfly using a Spica pen. I have some other ideas for this challenge and I hope to do some more crafting today, Friday & Saturday. I'm back to work tomorrow :( but need to earn those pennies for spending on crafty goodness :)
