I love garden whimsy!

I have been wanting to use my Garden Whimsy set for a couple of weeks now so last night I sat down to play with it. This was the very first set out of the new catty that I just HAD to have. Sad thing is, I don't think that I've used it that much lol! I used the cloud technique for the back ground. The flowers are stamped onto the background ( I had to use painters tape to mask the stamp to get the separate colors because I only have a few SU markers). I then cut out just the blossom of the flowers and put them on the card using dimensionals. For the butterfly I masked it, and stamped the butterfly onto the background. I then added the wing to make it look like it was actually flying.

Supplies: Stamps- Garden whimsy, happy harmony. Paper- White. Ink- Real red, certainly celery, Soft sky, almost amethyst, chocolate chip. Supplies- dimensionals, stardust gelly roll pen, cloud template, makeup sponge, painters tape, SU markers (Garden green and Chocolate chip)

Today's challenge over at splitcoast was to use something acrylic on our card/project. Imagine my delight when I found out rhinestones were acrylic!! Wahoo! I used the PTI set Limitless labels again. I've been having a stressful morning and my creativity has been completely zapped. I'm not too happy with this card.....
Supplies: Stamps- PTI Limitless labels. Paper- Perfect plum, pale plum, white. Ink- Perfect plum, pale plum. Accessories- rhinestones, scallop scissors, stickles.

I have a fun project planned for tomorrow's Dollar Find Friday so don't forget to check back!
