Saturated Canary: Catching Butterflies

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to show you a card made using one of the new Saturated Canary digi stamps that is my absolute favourite of all time! I coloured her with Promarkers and placed her on silver glitter card and cut a small border around the image. I then placed her on a polka dot panel of Papermania Capsule collection papers which I backed with red glitter card. I then made my base with three different papers from the same set. I placed a red glitter border of butterflies cut with a Memory box die and then cut little butterflies from another Memory box die out of the same card. I placed her at a slight angle, then added little red butterflies on the right hand side, and a larger butterfly in the top corner cut with a Spellbinders die. I then cut little butterflies from white glitter card and placed these in the opposite corner around a 'Have a fabulous day' dome greeting in the bottom left hand corner. Lastly I added three gems from the same Capsule collection in the top left hand corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Saturated Canary: Black and White plus One
Crafts and Me: Anything Goes
I love Promarkers: Gold, Silver or Bronze
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes
Waste Not Wednesday: Using old stash (Papermania papers)

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!
