 Hello everyone,

Monday lunchtime here while typing, I'm fed and watered so my brain should be quite active..ha ha's not..

But at least I have found this project in my folder and time to post it up..

When I want extra heaviness and dimension I use this grey cardstock off the back of writing pads..
it's very thick and strong ..

So that's what I used and this fabulous paper, a random 12x12 sheet that I probably have not looked at for I went to 6x6 pads and the scrapbook papers got pushed aside..

these flowers have been in my scrap pile for a long while too..

Leaves were a fresh die cut, they look great but are quite floppy..

I made little clusters of flowers and leaves, just makes things easier when they are smaller and you are using a lot of them..

They received the dimension too with foam tape..

Then I wanted to try this with the cotton, so I did, then covered it up..

Could still see it here, but then of course I got so carried away..

basically gone..

Mmmm..needed something, not a bird,butterfly or insect of any description..

A bow, a tartan bow..
and with the aid of hot glue and burnt fingers we have curves in the tails..

Which of course gave more dimension...

added a simple gold embossed stamped sentiment...
" Thinking of you today and everyday"..

Thank you so much for stopping by...

I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

I have a bit of fantasy to share today..

I have had this unicorn in my stash for a long while, it is a resin one and I sprayed him..
with my distress sprays..

Made a background, sort of mystical night sky..

There's my Unicorn
 and this beautiful wired ribbon which matches perfectly and tied into a bow..

Added some splatts onto this, as it dried it went added the gold

My elements all together..

then a blast from the past, punched out purple and turquoise flowers..
they matched the flowers in the unicorns mane..

So flowers and bows already..

Time to put it together..

It all went well, no bad language in the making of this card..

A bit of dimension, but not too much..okay, 
there was a lot, but the lady that just bought it didn't mind..

then sentiment of her choice went on and here it is all done and mystical..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone....

After I made and adjusted my tag, I had made those panels in that lovely turquoise colour..

Here they are...

and decided to cut cone flowers..

and Hummingbirds...

and gave them pretty jewel eyes...

The leaves I added black onto the edges as the greens were just seeping into the cardstock and they looked no different..

The hummingbirds...made with the same panel scraps after the flowers were cut, just added a bit of yellow to their chests..

The cone flower centers, cut in white and coloured with markers..

All glued together with only one section dimensioned with foam square..

The leaves [to me] still needed attention so they got splattered..

This paper from my stash got a good splattering too...

More scraps and this time butterflies..

I had to colour their legs as I cut them all out in the teal added the black body and their legs were sticking out all green..

Mmmm..potential background here...

and time to find the right place for my flowers and birds...

Love the dimension...

The FRIEND die was cut 4 times and layered together,
 them coloured from the bottom darker to lighter...and added gorgeous sparkly gems..

And there she is all pretty and turquoise blue..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

I made a tag for Tag Tuesday..last week, but I missed it, so this week they say Add a bow, so I did and I'm in time..yay!..

and it all started with this panel that I made with water paint and lots of water..

Then add my stencil and soft mousse...

But got carried away and had so much of it
 I watered it down and made these panels too...

Such a lovely colour and sheen....

Back to my tag...trimmed it and round cornered the corners...

Then found this leftover card from a Tonic Studio kit..

and die cut this flower stem and extra flowers in glitter cardstock..
this set is from Concord and 9th..

Corrugated card stock for dirt and some place to hide the stem bottoms..

Added the glitter flowers to the stem flowers...

a beautiful Hummingbird and all set to ...too late!!

So new challenge bows and I added a button and NOW all ready to go..

Thank you so much for stopping by
