Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Team Challenge Week 2

And on to Week 2, for the Ultimate Design Team Challenge at Swirlydoos.
This week it was all about layering, layering and lots of layers.
Below is my layout submitted with close-ups.
I used papers from the kit of the month.

Titled:  Look Into My Soul

 I did lots of distressing with water and scissors. I also did some hand stitching. The larger dark flowers I made using my Rose Creations Die and painted the edges with puff paint. 

 The blue-ish paper behind the photo was crumbled with my hand.  Then I rubbed chalk ink on top which made the folded edges stand out. 

The white/ivory flowers are from Prima. I also inked the edges with some chalk ink. 
The white lace was from my stash. 

Thanks for looking!

Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Challenge

Hi Everyone!

This is the first week for the challenge running at Swirlydoos. The challenge asked for a multi-dimensional-embellishment. So here is my entry with details! My layout is titled "Magical".

Here is my embellishment. I used a butterfly Sizzix die cut, painted the butterfly first with some white gesso. Then I mixed some Liquitex glass beads with silks acrylic gaze in teal zircon. Once it dried, I spritzed the butterfly with gossamer gold moonshadow mist and glory of the seas gold starburst spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  For the body of the butterfly I used some beads from Art C. I added some prima crystals to the corners. 

Here's a closeup, hoping you can see the fairy dust glitter I also sprinkled on here.  

This is a pic of DH and I. I used papers from the KOTM over at Swirlydoos. I love these FabScrap Organic papers! They are gorgeous..gorgeous!! I painted some DA I had, used flowers from Kaisercraft and Prima. 

Here's a closeup of the flower cluster. 

And another closeup of the butterfly. 

Thanks for looking!

Stuck On U Sketches Card Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone!!!
Here's another sketch for you lovely eyes. And the challenge will run Jan 16th-29th.
Head on over to Stuck On U Sketches to see what the other lovely ladies created.

There is one teeny tiny twist for this challenge.  So...We figured, out with the old and in with the new since this is a Happy New Year!!! With that said, we'd like to see you use "Scraps" for this project.  So get rid of those old papers by playing along at SOUS.

 Here is the sketch provided, by our lovely Nanne

And here is my interpretation. 

These were scrap papers from Kaisercraft. I used some MS punches and did some fussy cutting. 

Hope you enjoy!
