Yipee its the school holidays!!!

 My crafting time has been practically zero over the past couple of weeks but,   yipee!!!! its the Easter holidays and I have two weeks off work!  I just thought I would share a card I made a few weeks ago and Haven't had time to post.  Its a similar design to this one, I love the look of the Fabric background stamped in Victorian Velvet distress ink.




The butterfly is stamped onto vellum that I have coloured with alcohol inks.

This week the lovely Jill has been featuring me on her "Inspired by " blog, if you have time please take a look, Jill makes the most amazing cards, her colouring is always stunning and I feel honoured that she wanted to feature me.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.





Supplies used: Hero Arts Stamps CL383 Antique Engravings.CG245 Classic Fabric.S5507 Envelope Pattern. Victorian Velvet Distress ink.  Lace and Pearls. Hand rolled flowers.
