Good afternoon friends on a sunny Sunday afternoon, although rather cool. Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend. Welcome to the new friends who have joined. Love having you visit here.
We had no power for 6 hours today, due to a scheduled outage for maintenance, so I could spend some time quietly trying to catch up with various things, including finishing off a card or two.
This is a card I started while on holiday in New Zealand. I enjoy doing stitching on the cards, so it was an ideal thing to take on holiday with me.Looked for an image that I felt suitable, and found one drawn by Anne Fenton, who offers them as freebies to members of The Outlawz I printed the butterfly, coloured it with aquarelles and Twinking H20's. added a little stardust glitter. I cut it out and then added feelers for which I used little stamens, colourd with Copics....see I do use my Copics....LOL.. Mounted the butterfly on a Nestie diecut, shaded with distress inks.
The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy, also mounted on 3D foam pads. 3 pearls finish if off.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a great week. Here in South Africa we are having a holiday on Tuesday for "Women's Day", so some people are enjoying a long weekdn.
See you back soon.
