Papertake Weekly Challenge,, Do Something different :-)

Do Something Different !!

What a challenge we have for you on the Papertake Weekly !! I can tell you this one had me a bit worried :-) I bought some sticky backed canvas with the intention of making some lovely roses ,,, just like Tim's !! Mine looked NOTHING like his ,,, I should take piccy's and let you see my horrid attempt ,,, then I made a card, spraying the canvas with glimmer mist and stamping a silhouette onto it ,,,, OK, not what you would call 'Lovely' ,, so when I saw this Desk Caddy on Chris's blog I just thought 'YAY' I can do that !! :-)

We are being sponsored this week By Heidi at Simon Says Stamp ,,, so a fab prize on offer !! :-)

I followed Kathleen Innes tutorial and it was very easy to make :-) I used a 12x12 cream card and some 12x12 paper from Craft Creations,,, I love this blue :-)

The butterfly is from Judikins and I inked it with blue brilliance ink onto card and velllum. The vellum was then sprinkled with holographic powder,, lovely and glittery :-) I sprayed sticky backed canvas with silver, denim blue and glacier glimmer mists and IRL it looks so shimmery :-) I then used my big shot to cut out a circle and a Nellie Snellen frame for each side. I added a few gems and a gorgeous cream silk ribbon to finish :-)

I think this would make a lovely girlie gift filled with pamper goodies ! :-)

I am entering this into the following challenges :-)

Raise the Bar,,,, fave Colour ,,,, Blue ( usually but may depend on my mood ! )
Daring Cardmakers ,,,, Die Cut Crazy ,,, I used Nellie Snellen and nestie die cuts :-)
