Over The Edge

Over the edge is exactly where I will be if anything else goes wrong! Dentist confirmed I have chipped a front tooth so need to have a composite filling to match rest of tooth plus a nice bill to go with it. Oh well, I like bread and water!!
The new butterfly challenge starts today and runs for the next 2 weeks.
#104 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter O



Here are my  inspiration cards for you.

1st Card using Butterfly/Old Rose/Over the Edge



I have used watercolour cardstock to make the base and to stamp the image onto. The stamp is an unknown make so I have either been given the stamp or it is a freebie from a magazine. The Old Rose is the pink backing cardstock,the butterfly sticker and the flower above the sentiment. I have coloured with my Marvy Le Plume II water colour pens by scribbling the colours onto an acrylic block and picking up with a water filled brush pen. Edged when dry with  a silver gel pen. The 'Over The Edge' element is the card design with the base front page cut short and the stamped image mounted to hang over the edge. Sentiment is a silver sticker from my stash along with the pink butterfly. Inside of card  has been decorated to match.
 Card closed and below card inside.

2nd Card using Butterfly/Orange/Oval

I have coloured the digi image  (a freebie from Beccy's Place  called 'Poppies' which you can download from her website) with my Graph'it Marker pens and a gold gel pen. I used orange cardstock to make the base card. I also used a Nellies Multi Frame MFD013 oval set and placed  the largest  over the image (once coloured) and used as a template to apply pearlescent chalk in orange behind the poppies thus creating the Oval Element of the card.
 Close up of the poppies with the oval. Sentiment and butterfly are gold stickers from my stash. Just realised I have used Olive for the stems and leaves which are also hanging over the edge of the oval!!

Beautiful water colouring on the roses and love that chalk pearlescent oval around the beautiful poppies! The cute gold butterfly is a perfect catch-eye on the focal point!

Two real beauties Valery and nedless to say I adore the second with the glorious Poppies and the oranges are just the colour of some along the verge outside the barn.

The cards are really pretty. I love the poppies. I am so sorry about your tooth. I can understand your frustration. Just waiting for the next shoe to drop is exhausting. I hope everything is behind you now and things are improving.

Both wonderful floral cards. The oval background highlights the poppies beautifully. The gold accents are a nice touch. Would never have guessed the butterfly and sentiment are stickers... beautiful stickers. Sorry to read about your tooth, but at least there is a fix. Good luck with that. Thank you for joining us at Less is More. x
