Just Us Girls has a gorgeous photo as inspiration this week. Since I am a very literal person, I wanted to do justice to do this picture. I used this sketch from Less is More .
I scored the space, then using stipple brushes created the background with Adirondeck inks. The leaf-flower image was a mixture of stamps from Whipper Snapper, Stampendous, and Inkadinkadoo.
I stamped the butterfly from PaperTreyInk with Staz-On onto acteate, and colored the back of it with Copic Markers. I added some white dots with a gel pen to the front, and added the pearls (colored those with a black copic).
I liked how Giovanna created this white on white border, so I used her idea.
So here finally is my first post. I have been a "card-maker" for over 4 years now. And I started scrap-booking a few years before that.
I am a full time 6th grade science teacher (which I absolutely Love!).
I have a terrific hubby who supports my hobby (more on that perhaps in later posts), and 2 sons. One is already out of the house (engaged to a lovely young woman). The other just signed a lease, and will also soon be out of the house.
So here I am - with a bit of free time on my hands. This is an old photo - there is now another full shelf to the right of the existing piles. My crafting space is my dining room. Perhaps soon I will take over my son's room to be my craft room (happy, happy, joy, joy),
