MAWTT DT card -

Good morning everyone

I am working today so this is a scheduled post, but I will be back later to check all is well.

The sketch challenge at MAWTT this week has been designed by Hazel and we were given a digi stamp and some backing papers to use by the very talented Stitchy from Stitchy Bear Stamps, who is our sponsor this week. If you haven't visited the shop yet, go along and take a peek, there is a whole range of goreous goodies you can buy. Stitchy, if you read this, the sentiment is for you. Very apt don't you think??

This is my creation using Stitchy Stamps Butterfly Love and papers from Crafty Chaos, which I thoroughly enjoyed making. (Check them all out at Stitchy Bear Stamps - link above).  I mounted the three matting pieces on yellow paper, distressed them using faded jeans DI and edged them with the star dust stickles. The gorgeous image was coloured using promarkers (see list of colours below) and I have covered the wings with frosted lace stickles. Around the outside edge I used the faded jeans again and waterfall stickles - you know how I love to glitter things up. The green patterened backing paper was distressed and then edged with the waterfall stickles. The flower was made using prima petal layers and I have added my usual butterfly covered in glossy accents. Some little yellow flowers with a pin and beads tied with a ribbon have balanced out the design.

dress - tulip yellow, yellow, canary and oatmeal
hair - cinnamon, caramel, tan and satin
skin - pastel pink, dusky pink, blush and ivory
wings - pear green, denim blue, powder blue
others - forest green, peach, azure, duck egg, burnt orange

Have a great day and I hope to see your creations on the MAWTT challenge blog.

Take care. Luv B xoxox
