This one is embossed in pewter and cut out - I thought it needed more color behind.... The Riding Hood Red looked good - then the back side popped out before I had a chance to glue it down and I think I kind've like it!   I am sure I will think on it a few days to decide if it will stay this way!  :)


Sympathy cards are the hardest to do!!!  I do like how these turned out, tho.

Swallowtail and Stippled Blossoms

This is a fun card cased from Cecile Ortiz.  She doesn't post instructions, so I had to make my own way - but i am relatively pleased with the final work.  Kind of neat to have butterflies inside and out!

Hearts a Flutter

This is my latest - It's pool party and rose red.  feeling better about this one... the white panel needs something - The little heart came out nice - Love the new toys from the Spring Catalog!

Swallowtail Butterflys

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted!!  I have lots of excuses - ha - mostly that we have moved, moved two houses in together, unmoved them and loads of unpacking from a very, very uncoordinated move!!  haha  
I was so happy to get to stamp when I did these, they are passable, but still not right....  both are painted with champagne glimmer paint.  The yellow one, shows less, it's on the backside of the window sheet.  The second looks pretty showy.  Of course, in retrospect, I really wish I had brayered texture folder under the butterfly...  I was pretty mojo-less here!
