Always & Forever



Happy Saturday! Summer is in full force down here in Florida and we are enjoying a long weekend with the holiday yesterday and a day off on Monday *yay* That means lots of R&R = being crafty, sitting in my fav sun lounger by the pool with my kindle, sleeping in, watching favorite movies and "playing" in the kitchen ;-)

I also have some Whimsy News for you! Keep your eyes peeled, there's a new rubber release right around the corner (next week) which you definitely don't want to miss!!!

Meanwhile, until I can show you the new goodies,  I made a card using a sentiment set and die from the last rubber release:


The sentiment is from SC Designs 'Life's Moments' set and the delicate Butterfly Border is a Shapeology die also from SC Designs. The single butterfly is a cut out element from the border. The background was created using an alcohol marker (ShinHan in my case) and the Tim Holtz Spritzer Tool.


I embossed the butterfly border several times using UTEE for a porcelain like look.


The cut out butterfly was embossed with Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder and decorated with a pearl brad.



Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

See you again on Monday with some great news and also a chance to win some yummy rubber! :-)

Hugs,

This is amazing Iris. I love the way you used the spritz tool behind the diecut, and fabulous idea to emboss the diecut. Never done that before, might have to give it a try.
