Butterflies Galore

Hi all, it's time for challenge 170 at Crafting From The Heart Challenges. Our sponsor is the wonderful - Oddball Art Stamps. I had a mishap with my image and as it was nearly the last spot that I coloured on my image, I decided to cut the girl out of the whole image! She was surrounded by butterflies, but one of my copic markers (which I have never had refilled) decided to leak and made a huge mess that oozed outside of her hair area, onto her face and several of the butterflies!!!! With the use of my blender I managed to get enough of the colour off her face (I hadn't coloured that yet) but couldn't do anything about the butterflies and the surrounding white area so unfortunately that was discarded. If you are interested in the image, pop over to Oddball Art Stamps and see the whole image.
Here is what I made, following a sketch I found on Pinterest.

SU Rose Red cardstock
SU Pacific Point cardstock
White cardstock from stash

Challenge #185 at Aud Sentiments

Hi everyone, wow, we had a huge storm at lunchtime today, thought it was going to be a reasonable day, so hung the washing out only to have to drag it all back in about 30 minutes later. I could hear the rain coming as it hit the roofs of houses and then we had an electrical storm. It didn't last too long but the rain kept up all afternoon. Was out celebrating a friend's birthday and then went back to another friend's house for some crafting therapy, lol.
Anyway, I had better get on and share my creation for the new challenge starting today at Aud Sentiments. The theme is - No Sentiment on the front of your project.
Here is what I made.....

SU Pacific Point cardstock
SU Real Red cardstock
White cardstock from stash
Scraps of cardstock for the diecut balloons
Image is from SU wooden stamp set - This Little Piggy - stamped on white card and then again onto scrap, coloured, fussy cut and adhered to the original image
Die if from Paper Roses - It was a bunch of balloons with a few swirly pieces which I cut apart (did several of them in the different colours)
Background was made using Brusho powders and sprayed with water
Copic Markers
D/S tape runner & foam dots

Well that's all from me. Hope to see you over at the challenge blog joining in the fun of the challenge.

Praying Hands

Hi, late putting this post up, so backdating a bit. It's not going into any challenges so I'm safe in doing that. Crafty Girls Creations challenge 38 still has another couple of weeks to go so you still have time to join in the challenge if you haven't already. As always, it is an Anything Goes Challenge and this month it is just for fun.
Here is what I made using a Stampin'Up wooden stamp that I bought a while ago.

Recipe: SU products and a stamp and die combination set.

Hope to see you over at the challenge blog, come and see what you're fellow crafters make too.
