something completely different from me
I had every intention of making a Valentine's Day heart box for the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab this past week. (You can see it here at this link.)
Only when I went to make my planned canvas project, I used butterflies. D'uoh! I love it anyways, and in some ways, I love it even more!! Must be why I gravitated to the butterflies.
To make this, I used cranberry colored alcohol ink and water in a mini mister for the first layer. Then I placed the butterfly chipboard down and sprayed again with the orange color Smooch Spritz. (Love this stuff by the way, it was my first time using either technique.)
I let it dry and then outlined the masked areas left by the butterflies with a black ultra-fine Sharpie.
I covered the chipboard butterflies with paper, edged and sanded them, then popped them up off the canvas with foam double-sided pop dots. Add the bakers twine and the stamp, and vióla!
I had meant to get so much more done this weekend, but instead spent Saturday with a very dear friend (hi Ames!!!) and went to a Super Bowl party yesterday. I hope to catch up this week.
Happy Monday everyone, and hope it'll be a good week for you!
