Whales and Butterflies

Well that's my house sparkling, the ironing done and the garden weeded, so you're welcome to come visit!  I'd been a bit slovenly during the hot hot weather and it was a bit cooler today so I thought I'd better get my act together!!

So there wasn't much time for card making!  This ones a wee quickie using an old High Hopes stamp. I used the same splash watercolour technique as yesterday, and added a few splatters for good measure.  Gloss and glitter added to his water spout and droplets, and a bit of bling to finish.

It's summer school time at MFT :)
I'd love to have had a bit more time and a bit more mojo to play along!  Anyway, I loved Laurie's butterfly card so much I made one much the same.  I added some embossed lines to the background.  The little silver dots are the popped out bits from the edge of the butterflies.  I'll hopefully get time tomorrow to play along and be a bit more original!

  3. Sometimes simple designs turn out the best. Both these cards look great. Your butterfly card is really pretty. And so clever of you to use those little circles popped out of the butterfly wings. They work perfectly!

  4. The internet is a wonderful thing. We can be inspired by people from all over the world!
