I subscribed to My Creative Scrapbook for their yummy Limted Edition and since then I've really enjoyed scrapbooking. They currently have a challenge running which is to follow a sketch - so this is my take on it.
This is my lovely lovely grand-daughter Daisy - she is the perfect model - will pose endlessly for me - a absolute darling!!!
The patterned paper is by Magenta - Dancing Buterfly - a paper I bought from Running with Scissors ages ago but knew one day it would be a perfect background!!!! I have carefully cut out the butterfly wings leaving the body attached to the paper, inked the wings with Walnut Stain and stickled them with Rangers Diamond. Then I placed the whole page on a piece of purple Bazzil, lifted the butterfly wings up so that it created a 3d effect. Daisy adores Tilda stamps (I have to stamp them up for her so she can take them home to colour in) so I have included a couple of them as embellishments (both on watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks). I have used my fave Martha Stewart Doily punch on the other contrasting papers, added pearls, a heart doily, diamantes and some lovely pink ribbon. Thoroughly enjoyed myself :O)
Thanks for looking
