Bringing out the bling this week. Cindy posted this lovely little bejeweled teapot. There are more views on her glob, so make sure you take a look and also see her beautiful butterfly card. You're going to love it!
When I looked at this this morning I was so glad that I had an SU order being delivered today because I was sure that I had ordered the Big Shot Butterfly die, but guess what - I didn't. So I did some scrambling. This butterfly is made from the pull off lids of a yogurt container and a jello cup. I will post step-by-step pictures on Thursday for my Thursday's Throw Aways post. I can tell you now that they are quite simple to make if you have the lids, a crimper, some wire, a needle tool, beads and sharpies.
Anyway, I was lucky to have some of these butterflies stashed away so I picked out the bluest one and then got thinking about what I would use for the flowers. I knew I wanted to make it sparkly but I didn't want to do any embossing (because I didn't want any more clean-up tonight), so by chance when I was actually searching for my box of embossing powders, I came across my box of Twinkling H20's and thought they would do.
I used my cuttlebug to emboss the flower background on Whisper White paper and then got to painting. This, as it turns out, took a wee bit longer than I had anticipated, but to be honest, it was very relaxing. I hope that you can see the shine in the picture. The last touch was to add the blue jewels to the flowers.
Well, I'm glad I made it to the tea party on time this week because it was all fancy schmancy and I didn't want to miss all the fun on the red carpet!
Now I think I'll go have a piece of birthday cake and ice cream!
