Social Butterfly Aquamarker Card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! I have been challenging myself to use my existing stash in new ways and this is one of the results and I think its my favourite (for obvious reasons ;-)) I used Stazon inks to stamp my under used stamps on watercolour paper and then colour washed with my neglected aquamarkers. I scribbled the aquamarkers on my craft sheet then took the colour with a watery paint brush :-) I mounted the panel on coredinations card and then stamped all round my base card with butterfly stamps using Memento. I then placed the sentiment at an angle in the middle :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
