However, after Marcia left, I suddenly spotted a die-cut snippet [Altenew's Leafy Garland] that had been in the background all day... I had a bit of a smooshing play with it. Can you find my colorful butterfly? It was hand drawn and cut from vellum, and the body from kraft. Her wings were 'colored' with that little snippet I mentioned:
After taking my photographs [an insurance policy on what might have turned out to be a disaster!!] I decided to color it a bit more... tell me, which do you like better? The simple CAS one above, or this color-added one? That sweet little Gerbera wanted a little attention!
I was so happy that my 'kids' performed nicely for their visitor to their own little house - 5 boys, 3 girls bloomed!
Off it goes to the gallery … I've another deadline to meet! This time for CAS Mix Up! There was another snippet that I really almost threw away - Marcia convinced me to try, try again - so I did! For Loll... stamping, die cut, and paper towel ...
By the way... after I glued that paper towel down to a piece of white card stock, and then die cut it, I had lost the wonderful texture of the paper toweling. Guess what? If you give it a fine mist of water? It reappears!
One more … this time for The Flower Challenge's Favorite Flower!
Though I carried white tulips at our wedding, the Gerbera Daisies decorating our tent and tables were my favorite of the day…
Uniko Gerbera - Altenew butterfly
Okay... that's it for me [thank goodness, right?] I'm off to drop these into their appropriate gallery!
Happy weekend, my friends!
