Hey y'all! Tiddly Inks is doing something fun and new (or at least to me)...a blog hop where ANYONE can be part of the hop! You can go here to see the details.
As soon as I heard about the challenge, I knew I wanted to participate. Also, I already had an image printed that I felt really went with the Friendship/Flower theme. So here it is!
Sorry the picture's a little dark. It looked alright at 2 am when I was resizing it! LOL I used the fabulous Flutterby, which is one of my favorite Tiddly Inks images and can be found here in the Tiddly Inks Basement. I've always loved this image, but for some reason had never quite found the perfect card. I merged Flutterby with Daisy Days from Happileigh Scrappin'. The image was colored with Copics, except for the flower petals, which were colored with Spica markers. The papers are from DCWV, Stampin' Up, and the purple butterfly paper is from stash; unfortunately I've forgotten where I got it. The little butterfly embellishments are from a punch a very nice woman loaned to me at my very first crop. The larger butterfly embellishments are chipboard butterflies I won in an Archiver's gift bag. They have been painted with Ranger Dobber ink and a permanent marker to make the body. There is ribbon from Michael's under the chipboard butterflies. You can't see it in the picture, but because I bent up the wings of the butterflies for dimension you can see it in real life...I promise! =D Stickles have been added to the chipboard butterflies and the ones in the image, and the gems are from my stash. I don't remember where the quote came from; I heard it once a long time ago and it has always stuck with me and I thought it was perfect for the image. It says "Friends are angels that give you wings when you forget how to fly".
As part of the creation of this card I used this week's fabulous sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Thank you so much for stopping by!! If you are part of the Tiddly Ink Blog hop - enjoy the rest of the hop and good luck!
