Hooked on Craft Challenge DT Card

It's time for a new challenge over at Hooked on Craft Challenges folks! Sooooooo, without further ado-and with many fingers crossed that Blogger's scheduling is working! lol-I will just get on with it :)

This fortnights challenge is....Things With Wings....and I had so much fun with this one!

Karen has loads of cute stamps with 'things with wings' on them but I just couldn't resist the butterfly sets! There are large and small to choose from...but you know me, I just couldn't choose, so used loads of different ones lol :)

See how they shimmer and shine!!!?

I wanted the butterflies to look like they were 'fluttering'
 over the paper, so they were all coloured with Promarkers and cut out, then covered in Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Glamour Dust-gotta have the sparkle on the butterflies don't ya? This technique means that when the paper/card stock dries, the Glossy Accents 'plasticises' it, making it pliable so you can mold it and it keeps it's shape. So the wings were shaped and I coiled little springs out of fine lilac wire and attached them with silicone.

I used a white dotty embossed 8x8 card blank,  Back to Basics paper, Coredinations cardstock-what else? lol, pretty lilac Hunkydory glitter card, lime green die cut doily, white satin ribbon, some lilac fibres, beautiful 2 inch sheer glitter organza ribbon, lilac die cut banner and sentiment stamp all from my stash.

The butterfly stamps, stunning oriental lilies, lilac stick on gems and the gorgeous handmade butterfly pin are all from Hooked on Craft

What are you waiting for ladies? Get crafting! Lol.

It would be really good to see you all in this challenge.
