On Saturday afternoon I got out my little box of images, which had been all but forgotten since we moved here. It's a treasure trove of printed/stamped but not yet coloured images ... mainly digital images that were printed out at the time they were acquired, some pre-printed that came free with various craft magazines, and just a few that were the product of test stamping sessions. I sorted through them and to while a way an hour or two I got out my collection of ProMarkers and spent a productive hour or two just colouring ... bliss!
To mat and layer the image I picked out coordinating colours from Docrafts Papermania Textured Card and then adhered it to a black card base. Bonus was that I was able to use the red card leftover from one of the Rudolph Day cards posted a few days ago.
For the decoration the butterflies were punched (a Woodware punch) from the tiniest snippets of the red card - nothing goes in the bin unless I've exhausted all possibilities :)
Finally, two colours of Stickles, Xmas Red and Platinum, and a couple of Crystal Stickers red gems were used to add a bit of bling.
After all that I'm hoping there's enough bling in this submission to satisfy Mrs A's Butterflies Challenge #6 - Glamorous Butterflies
I'm also nipping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 122 ... I always enjoy scrolling through Di's round up for the week because she does a great job of the showcase and it never fails to amaze me how ingenious crafters can be when it comes to using up even the tiniest leftover scrap from their snippet collection.
It's a dull day here, looks like rain, and the temperature outside had plummeted too so I won't be doing much pottering in the garden today. However, I'm not down because this is the view from the craft room window.
That's it for today, thanks for visiting - I hope you enjoyed reading it and, it goes without saying but I'll say it anyway, any comment is greatly appreciated :)
I'll wish you a good day and leave you to keep crafting.
