Happy Wednesday Morning!! Today is Flutter By Wednesday!! I so look forward to my posts on these days and seeing the creations of the rest of the fab team and all you participants! I am so glad to see so many of you joining in on the fun! What is not to like about fairies and butterflies right! Fairies are so mystical and butterflies remind me of spring and summer, so cheerful.
The featured team member this week is the ever so sweet and talented Harriet. Harriet just recently had surgery and she never missed a beat when it came to these challenges. I so admire her tenacity and dedication!! She does not have a blog but she links all her creations on SC for you to see. You can find all her amazing creations here. Please leave her some love.
This weeks challenge is to use a butterfly or fairy and brads or eyelets on your card. If you don't have any brads or eyelets, that is o.k., just make a card with a butterfly or fairy. If you do make a card or project, please link it to Mr. Linky here on Danni's blog or use the keyword FBW if uploading to PCP or SC. This week I decided that it was time to order and ink up my first Anya image. I have so admired my oh so talented and sweet friend Janna's and so many other blogging friends Greeting Farm images so I thought it was time to get in on the fun too. I used Flutter By Anya which I purchased from the Greeting Farm. Isn't she adorable!!! Who could resist such a darling image. (yes I am still justifying purchasing yet another stamp! Tee hee!) I used yesterday's color challenge CC220 to incorporate Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron. I also cased this card for the layout from this week's featured stamper challenge FS120, Mercy, at SC ( www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1288595?cat=500&ppuser=77686 ). I changed the colors, dp, image, sentiment and added different details to make it my own. The image is watercolored and layered on dimensionals. The butterflies are punched using the classic butterfly punch from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from small SU's Small Sayings set.
