Sunday Stamper: Dream

What a lovely title to do for the Sunday Stamper this week! I'm dreaming of being able to go to CHA like Hels, if you click on the link and get to her blog you can see what a wonderful time she is having, and it couldn't happen to a nicer person! At least we can enjoy her adventures! As she has set Dream for her challenge this week I thought I would try for an unusual card for my dear friend Sally, who will now know what I am sending her this month! XX Sal, here it is, I'll put it in the post asap.

I free hand cut out a butterfly from card and then used Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Walnut stain distress with my foam pads. Then I took archival coffee and stamped the french writing from Tim's
 French set and two incidental stamps of a star and a whirl. The lady is part of a collage stamp of a Diva, can't remember the maker sorry, and I used my pads and Distress markers to colour her gently. The sentiment was cut out seperately to give the words on the other wing and then I used one of my first sentiment stamps I brought on the bottom which was coloured in to match. The handles were then threaded with various beads from my stash. I quite like this for a card, you can write on the back and if you attached it with ribbon instead of beads it would fold and be easy to send in the post - I think I shall have to bubble pack this one! I took this photo in my conservatory but the light from the impending snow has  not given it such a warm colour as it is in real life. Least I'm saying it is because of the snow and not my lack of photography skills!
Keep warm everyone and safe. x
