Fluttering by


I've been absent from blog land lately, I've been working extra hours and have missed having my time off to create and visit your blogs.  Hoping to catch up this weekend.

Above I used an alcohol ink background from my stash and painted some Delta Sparkle Glaze that had been unopened on my shelf for many years!  The image is  Upsy Daisy from Stamp Up (been sitting on my table for over a year) embossed in a fine black, and the butterfly die cuts Memory Box and Amuse, I also used a scallop border punch to add more interest.

Glad you stopped by, have a wonderful weekend!

A few fun challenges:
FHL Throwback Thursday: E! Anything goes (Stamp that is a year old)
Glitter n Sparkle: Anything Goes
Moving Along With the Times: Inspiration Photo Challenge

Wowzas!!! This is SO lovely! I haven't played around much with alcohol inks, but this stunning creation really makes me want to splurge. Love the wash in the background and the sheen of the silhouetted flowers in the foreground!

Background is UBER Awesome! Love all that glimmer on the marbling, and the Upsy Daisy image was beautiful against the colors of a wonderful sunset. Great card, and glad you were able to use a stash background. Love it when that happens. I'm behind on posting & blogging too. Life just gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it? Hope you get a nice rest over the wkend. TFS
