I can't believe Taylor Van Bruggen asked me to be her Featured Cupcake Sampler this week - I was so excited when I saw her email!!! Then once I accepted the panic set in; I would have to be on a schedule something I haven't had to do since I stopped working 6 years ago!!! I managed to calm myself down and actually focus, again something that I falter at now that I am at home; sure I can stamp for my blog but I don't HAVE to be done at a certain time, I have to say it was nice to know I can make myself focus when I have to (if only I could do that for the ironing that is piling up!)
It took a long time for me to decide on what image to use; and flutter by huggabugg from Stamping Bella was calling my name - she was perfect for the layout. She is stamped with Mementos ink and coloured with copics, I added some watercolour shimmer to her wings.
Taylor's Tiny Twinkles in both orange and light green. When I first looked the little twinkles I was worried about spilling them (I have been known to be a bit of a klutz) then how to work with them because I don't have a fancy tool. I looked around and found my good old quickstik from quickkutz and the gummy part worked perfectly!!
The card base is SU's soft sky layered with certainly celery and the DS paper is from My Minds Eye's "bloom & grow" line. I pierced the paper because I thought sewing would be too much of a distraction from the twinkles. For her antenna's and along the bottom I used Stamping Bella bonbons in the same colour of orange as the twinkles.
This was a lot of fun - thanks again Taylor and have a great weekend everyone!!
