This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

Hi there! Don't you just love the bright, cheery colour here? Me too.
This card has scattered embossing on the white base layer using an Anna Griffin folder. The edges are distressed, and it's attached to a dark brown card base.
The colourful panel, and white cardstock has been die cut, then the white cuts embedded in the coloured piece. This was matted with dark brown cardstock.
Burlap paper-absolutely love this stuff- was stenciled, using the opposite piece from the white die cut, as the stencil, and dark brown acrylic paint.
The fabulous butterflies are from a new e-cut file from Quietfire Design. The sentiment stamp is Quietfire Design as well.
All the pieces were layered and attached, ribbon added, pearls added, and DONE!
I am sharing this card on Splitcoast Stampers for the embedded flower challenge.
