OHHHHHH the beach...I would so love to be there! I just got this stamp set from the UPS man on Monday. I usually wouldn't pick a set like this, but for some reason I kept coming back to this one. The set is called On the Beach from The Angel Company. I used the shells and starfish stamps to create the background paper. I stamped the sentiment onto brown "sandy colored" CS. All the solid CS on this card are papers from Co ordinations..so I was able to easily sand the CS to give it a different look. I added some brads, and some twill ribbon. I stamped the little spiral shell and added that in place of the flower on the original Sketch.
Next I wanted to share this butterfly with you. Yesterday I posted the grunge flower I made using my I-top brad maker. Here is the silk flower butterfly.
I used 2 large silk flowers, and the center is an I-top brad I made using some TAC PP. For the "body" I used some ribbon wire, which I curled at the top. HERE is the link to the tutorial from Imaginisce's blog...where I got this idea from.
Thanks for stopping by!
