this n that


Using embossing past, stencil, stamping and a butterfly die. Trying the 
 nail polish technique inspired by Bonny which my butterfly
was die cut from.
 I only had two colours so it turned out a little dull but a rather
different and interesting technique. [Lots of ventilation needed]
Tangerine memento ink pad was used for my stamps.


This is a great challenge blog to learn new techniques from
the lovely DT, always inspiring. Thank you..

What a wonderful card Annie! Lovely colours, the two tone flowers and text look fabulous. The butterfly is a great addition and stands out it the darker colours beautifully. I watched the video and had to smile as the poor guy had everything going on in the background. I hope his wife wasn't too miffed with the amount of her nail varnish he used, looks a fun technique though and worked perfectly for you. You'll have to nip out for more colours Annie :). Debra x

A fantastic card Annie. I'll have to look out any nail varnish that I may have left over from my days when I had longer nails.
