Vicki is our Host for our Colour Week at Just Us Girls
and it's a super combination with so many possabilities!
Greta Hess from GG Creations

My card is pretty basic. I had the dies already on my desk
 so went with them in the colours above.
They are from MFT and background embossed brick is Kaisercraft.
Sentiments are from Paper Smooches inked with
Versafine Clair 
(I loooove those inks)
Decided to add something a little different
to finish it off  - buttons. haven't used them in an age
and don't we all have a stash!
That's pretty much it!
OH! and this is the last of my three-fers after all
there are three colours in our challenge.
Love it when a card comes together as quick as this one.
Should be a fun gallery this week with these great colours.
Check out what our New Guest Greta and the Team created and
Hope to see yours there.

My Big Bold Beautiful Butterfly...

Once again it is time for our Anything Goes 
Mixed Media Challenge at

It's always fun to move away from card making and 
get into the Mixed Media Zone and play.
You never know how your project will finish.
While my friend was here recently we bought a few dies
and to our surprise the butterfly above was
way bigger than we thought. You could say
we didn't look at the size did we!
Worked out nicely for my MM project though.
I thought I would go softer on the colours this time round
as I do love Tim's Speckled Egg.
Here's the how and products I used with some progress photos!
Background is coloured with Lindy's Magical's
Distress/Oxide inks and Ken Oliver Metals.
Added circles from Dutch Doobadoo stamping by Kaisercraft
 and stencilling with AALL&Create Cracked Walls with grit paste.
Inked die cuts adding Stampendous
Aged Copper Enamel and adhering to background.

Die cut THAT big butterfly with heavy weight paper.

I loaded up the die with Tim's Speckled Egg,
Lindy's Magical's and Stampendous
Aged Copper Enamel around the edges
and centre of the butterfly.
Added extra colour with AA waxes of
Rich Copper and Peacock.

Cheesecloth was added to the background
before attaching the popped butterfly.
Undecided as to a sentiment if it needed one.
Adhered to coloured card base to complete.

Head over and see what magical mixed media
has been created by our Guest Anita and my
Talented Team Mates to Our Blog
for your pleasure. We would love to see you
get creative and add your mixed media piece.
using multiple mediums to the Gallery.
Thanks for taking time out to
check out what I have been up to.
