Seems I am Addicted to .....

Hello Craft Ones. Today's posting is for the
current challenge at you guessed it
I just love this gorgeous photo.
I know the butterflies just pop out at you
and everyone loves a butterfly but...
my eyes were drawn to the lovely flower spray
at the bottom and  knew which stamp I was going to use.
It is Lily of the Valley (4308W) from Repeat Impressions.

I started by heat embossing the image with
Wow Metallic Platinum and blended
metallic paints for the leaves. I added
White Opal Liquid Pearls for the tiny flowers.
I sponged lightly around the image to take away
the stark white background.
I cut out a frame sponged with a TCW stencil
deciding not to pop it.
My sentiments are from
STAMPplorations Bold Sentiments and
CUTplorations Awesome Die.
Added a tiny twine bow die, a few pearls
and of course there had to be a teeny weeny SU butterfly
(a bit smaller that the photo lol)
Inks used were Distress - Bundled Sage & Pealed Paint.

That's it for today.
Thanks for dropping in. Love reading your comments.

I had to zoom in to get a good look at all the gorgeous details on your card, Ina. Using the Liquid Pearls for the flowers was a great idea and you even managed to include a butterfly.

Totally in love with this take on the inspiration, SS! Gorgeous! (and of course love that you used that adorable RI stamp.)

Simply gorgeous Ina! Love the monochromatic look, with the splash of the pearl for the flowers. Such a dainty card.
