 Hello everyone,

We are having the most beautiful Autumn day today and it is quiet, not too much traffic, no kids..yay!..and little miss Holly is still not outside..

In fact it is the time of the year that I long for
 as she sleeps on my bed every morning so I cannot make it and I do not mind..

now onto this panel....this was my scrap paper to swipe my palette knife
and it formed a great texture so I sprayed it with Saltwater Taffy..presto.

Made a panel for my card  6x8..

Fished out my old spellbinders dies, they are so neat,
 and I had forgotten how neat they were..

Made a nice white edging for the panel...

and loaded on the flowers and butterfly....

Flowers were white card stock and coloured with SWT sprays and water..

New Honey Bee butterfly coloured with markers..

OH NO...a black ink splat on that petal...

Fixed it, good old white gel pen..awesome.

And there we go....all done, I so love this colour..

Thank you so much for stopping by, enjoy your weekend..

Very pretty card and a lovely design so full of texture, layers and splatterings! Glad you've enjoyed the nice Autumn day! I'm just now starting to get warmer weather for Spring! ;)

A white gel pen or a Posca one is a must have, I use them for covering up little mistakes too. Seriously cool background, looking so great and probably unintentionally too based on what it was used for. Gorgeous flower creation, love your die cut borders!

Beautiful, Chrissy! That trick to fix the spot is brilliant. I wouldn't be able to disturb Holly either, she is the picture of peacefulness and love.
