The lose of Brian has knocked me all for six. Was just about coming to terms with Julie's death (his wife not 5 yrs ago to MND and now Brian to Prostrate Cancer. I can't settle to anything for long.
I had all these images downloaded and ready to make into cards but mojo completely deserted me. A new challenge is about to start over at the Butterfly Challenge but I have sat and made these up to showcase some of the lovely papers and digi images that you can purchase at Buddly Crafts from their online store. The prizes with the current challenge #140 are gift certificates from them.
Design paper is Pretty Mix Purple No4. The image is Lilyboo Butterfly Roses I have coloured using my Graph'it pens and used Wisteria as one of the theme colours. I have edged using both a black and a dark purple glitter gel pen and I just wish you could see IRL how much it shines. I used a very pale blue pearlescent chalk to colour in the sky background. Raised up the image (which I fussy cut)with 3D pads. The sentiment is a black glossy sticker from my stash.
