TIO #6 - Dragonflies and Butterflies

Here is my tag for the TIO #6 Challenge Butterflies and Dragonflies. I have really enjoyed this one, the colours and thinking about the symbolism. Living by the canal, we often get Dragonflies in the garden, and this year, I have already seen more butterflies than almost the whole of last year!!

So, a wonderful collage stamp by Creative Stamping, and a great UMount corner stamp are combined for this tag. I have overstamped with various leaves and words. The backgound was made by swirling the shiny card through the distress inks and spraying with Starburst stains and Glimmer mists - it's always a source of disappointment that the glimmer and shine does not show up on the screen!! A simple purple bow completes the piece. Thanks for looking...

Babes... better late than never!!

This card is for my partner in the Rainbows Swap... I have been really naughty and not finished it soon enough. Do hope she likes it. Problem was it was a challenge to do cute... and I just don't!!!

The image is one I have used before from my childhood - Mabel Lucie Attwell and the stamps are from Aspects Of Design from the StampMan, by Kay Carley... they are lovely plates - you NEED them!!! Thanks for looking.
