Well I needed a childs birthday card so thought this would be the ideal image,It is called "Fishing Friends. Full details of this from my blog.

Yvonne - Bold and Bright inspiration.  I have a new set of stamps which, at the moment, are my favourite!!  Had to use them on this piece.

Terry I had fun with a small canvas, I worked on the background with Metallic PanPastels, Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple. Splashed it all with water and made little dots with the Graph-it Shake Pen, on top Iridescent Paste and underneith the butterfly on the canvas itself a butterfly with Glossy Accents. On top of that a Butterfly colored with Pans to give it a Dimensional look. To finish a sentiment.

The products that I have used are:

Claire C I've altered an MDF heart, I adore the yellows in the PanPastel collection so I used Hansa Yellow, Diarylide Yellow to colour my heart once I'd given it a coat of Maimeri white gesso. I added some texture using Maimeri Light modelling Paste and a Dutch Doobadoo Chicken Wire stencil. You can find all the details on my blog

Here are the products I've used.

Lou:  I wasn't sure what to do this week, so put everything away and then took out a selection of random items and this is what came about! I have embossed the background and then added further colour highlights. A selection of stamped images as my background, finished off with a butterfly corner die cut (Tonic) and some additional flowers.
