Be True to You...

I am Host at Just Us Girls for Colour Week and chose
Mustard Turquoise and Black.
Welcome to March and our New Guest Designer
Michele Ferguson.

I was having a play with shaving cream and stencils 
a while back and these colours work perfectly together
You all know I love making backgrounds.

Here is a close up of the layered flower.

Flower, Stencil, Sentiment and background stamping 
are from AALL&Create.
Flower head has been cut three times as you can see
from the close up.
Added thread to the background - 
something Tracy Evans the designer of the
stamp I used does regularly.
Placed a black pearl to centre of the flower.
Backed by black frame overlapping the white card base.
Finished with a simple sentiment.
Head on over and see what our Guest Michele
and The Team created using the colours I chose
and hope you get a chance to add yours to the Gallery.
You could be chosen Chic of the Week
and go on to be our Guest in May.
Thanks for visiting

A Trio of Butterflies...

Hello and Welcome to my post for our 
New Anything Goes Challenge 
For my project and inspiration 
I had a fun but somewhat messy time
(as you do with Mixed Media)
creating three very different  ATC's.

You know me as always I start off taking photos
and get carried away creating and forget along the way.
I started here with torn tissue paper pasted onto my
three ATC's (which disappeared in the end)
then added texture with a favourite stencil
from AALL&Create.

As I had butterflies out for another challenge
I decided to use up a few more here.
After the texture paste dried I added 
Lindy's Magical's in different colours
for each ATC and let it run in various directions.
Collected elements to add to the backgrounds
with inked lace, sisel, cotton thread and a piece of coloured bark.
Coloured the butterfly with the same Magical's
to match the bark
and added a bead to the centre.
Added glossy accents to the butterfly wings.
and added a gem to the centre here.

Finished with some inking on the edges
a little coloured backing and sentiment
from Tim's Small Talk.
Hope you will pop over and see
what was created for you from
our Guest Designers and the Talented Team.
