Crafts and Me Butterfly Keeper in Aqua

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! This stamp really spoke to me as many of you will know I raise butterflies from caterpillars so it just suits me! I couldn't wait to play with her!
I have stamped her in Memento, then coloured in with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Sakura pens then accented the butterfly globe by coating it with Glossy accents for a 3D effect.
I then cut her with a nestie but I only wanted the shape on the one side of her for a different look so I cut the other three sides off using my ruler and craft knife.
I used Papermania Aqua Capsule collection papers and made a two patterned border under the nestie. I then placed this on a card blank covered with Henbury Lane papers for the flourishes. I then cut two butterflies out of the Capsule collection papers and added matching gems to them, and to make a trail from them. I then added three in the top corner. Lastly I added a felt bow with a button stitched on which complimented her hair.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Divas By Design: Flourishes
Allsorts Challenge: Buttons and Bows
I love Promarkers: Die Cuts
The Paper Shelter: Bling it on
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges: Anything Goes
Lets Ink it Up: Bling
Stampin Sisters in Christ: Build it up

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
