Today I am sharing a couple of cards made using the same layout just different colours and shapes . I have used distress inks, ultra thick embossing powder on the bee and dragonfly to add shine . and the hibiscus stamp Set by Tracy evans and the stunning dragonfly and bee are images by Annie Lane and they can be found with all of Annie’s designer papers here at
Yesterday I shared 2 cards I had made and was asked to make a video on how I did them so here it is this time using butterflies and different colour ways here is the video if you would like to have a go for yourself

I watched a masterclass by Monica Paruso for Stamperia and I loved the project she created so I had a go at creating it for myself and here is my version
It is an A4 canvas . A piece of Stamperia passion paper was applied to to the canvas and this scene was created over it using texture paste and acrylic paint using a palette knife .A ballerina paper die cut was then shaped with a ball tool and added to the canvas for dimension .. I really enjoyed making this project ...I bought all my Stamperia papers and die cuts and moulds from https://in2craft.com/ you will not find better prices anywhere else
here is the link in case you also want to have a go at the project yourselves

Today I am sharing an upcycled photo frame and slimline card . To alter the cheap white plastic frame I used gesso , texture paste and tattered angels grey chalk paint on it and then finally dry brushed it with white acrylic paint . The papers and die cuts I used in each panel are by Stamperia and are called Romantic Journal .. I also used mulberry paper and foamIran flowers , sequins lace and die cut leaves coloured with distress ink .
The papers and die cuts were from
https://in2craft.com. They have all
The new Stamperia ranges and you will not find better prices anywhere for them all

I also made a plank effect background and simply added a stamped butterfly coloured using distress ink and a die cut doily behind it .
