The cuddlebug is becoming one of my favourite tools because I can emboss and cut and I love this butterfly! Both can go for the Anything goes challenges. The first card I used purple and bright green and cream. The cream card I embossed and there is this neat sparkly green paper that I used for the butterfly wings but you can see the sparkle too much. I also had this fabric, sheer, that was used for flowers and I cover the purple paper in it for this neat sheen effect. I coloured the peel off in green and added these fabric flowers to the corners. The 2nd card I used a variety of greens and found this stamp that I haven't really used but I thought it was perfect for Wedding/Love since, in this day and age of entertainment crappola where weddings seem to last as long as a sneeze I thought the word "Sincerity" was appropriate. I used different strips of paper left around(don't we al have those) and created the stripes and the end pieces have polka-dots. I glued all these down with the sticky tape and the background of the butterfly wings I used vellum! I have not used that in ages and I coloured it with tombow markers and I wish I had a light behind the butterfly because it turned out really neat...if I do say so myself. I added peel offs for borders which I love using also and I used scizzors (another fav) for the border around the stamp which I then poked little dots with another of my favourite tools to have the delicate look. I placed some pastels colouring around the edges to finish it off. Everyone have a very Happy Easter!!
