I've Got Something to Post - Yay!!!!

Seriously, I've actually made one or two things recently but I'll spread them out a bit otherwise I'll hit another bare patch and have no artwork to post again, Lol!

This is a card I made recently by embossing with clear EP and then brayering over the top with Big and Juicy ink. I then made an acetate 'jacket' on which I stamped with Versamark and embossed with Moonglow EP. Finally I stamped a butterfly onto DP using Versamark and the same Moonglow EP, cut it out and then positioned it on the acetate over a butterfly on the card beneath. I lifted the wings and only attached the body.

It's a bit short and sweet tonight (now who shouted yipee?) but I'm starting to feel as though I have a cold coming on. You know, sore throat, bit shivery and headachy, so I'm going to get a soothing drink and curl up with a few magazines. It's the one too many cuddles I had with a poorly little granddaughter last week that's done it I think!

Hope you're all starting to thaw out nicely now. I'll be back soon.

Thanks for visiting. I really appreciate you keep coming back.

Oh, this is lovely! Beautiful butterflies, and I love how you've overlaid the acetate, something I have yet to try.

Hope your cold doesn't turn out too bad, but wrap up warm, I don't think we're finished with this freezing weather yet, in spite of the thaw.

Great card - I know what you mean about the quiet times and having nothing to post. Hope your cold doesn't develop too seriously.

Gorgeous, Lesley. The Artylicious stamps are always so lovely to use aren't they and I love how you've used the acetate.
Hope the cold doesn't develop too much. Keep Warm.
