Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Floral Collage

Flowers and butterflies, one of my favourite themes for a card and that is what the challenge is at Come and Get it Challenges this week.

I printed the digi image by Arty Pants Digital Stamps on water colour paper. I copied the butterfly a second time so I could cut out the wings and layer them on the card.

I coloured the images with a paint brush, water and distressed inks. I think the inks gives the card an antique look. I also trimmed the card with a lace punch by Martha Stewart to add more interest and continue the antique theme of this Flora Collage card.  I resisted adding glitter to the card because I thought it was busy enough with  such a detailed image.

We’re excited to see what all of you come with this week at Come and Get it Challenges! Hope you’ll join us.

I would also like to enter this card into Party Time Tuesday’s challenge(#70) this week - anything goes.
