Just in case you hadn't yet caught on...I really love to make stuff! No, for reals. I do. I just get excited with each and every piece that I create. As you know, I like to play with all kinds of materials and complete finished projects of assorted varieties! It's so fun!!! I just love it!
SO...today I am going to share a couple of things I have created lately!
First, I created this Butterfly Wings ATC for the Vintage ATC swap over at SSS! I think I like the way it turned out. I had another plan, but I wasn't able to get the mold to do what I wanted to do, so I had to change my plan, but that's what drives these things, kwim?
The Butterfly wing is stamped with a Skipping Stones Design stamp on vellum with StazOn ink.
I used watercolors and glimmer mist to add color to the background paper and the trim. The button is cut in half and adhered to the card.
I stamped the image on the bottom after swashing the background with watercolors and then used twinkling H2O's to add just a bit of color. The crowns are cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge (I think) on my Cricut and then glittered with Martha Stewart glitter glue.
I love that the butterfly is attached only at the body so that it can truly fly away!
I also made a couple of headbands this week! This first one is made from a t-shirt and some vintage buttons. (You know how much I love vintage buttons!!!!)
I actually stitched the flowers this time so that they could be a bit more billowy and a bit messier than when I use adhesive. To create the band portion I just braided three strips of the fabric cut from the sleeves of the t-shirt. I really love this one!!!!
This one, I have to be honest, I feel guilty even saying I 'made' it, as it is a total cheater headband! LOL! Those big fabulous flowers are straight from a Prima package! LOL! I just added them to the headband and WA-LA! But, seriously, folks. It's super freaking adorable. Just say'n! I do want to replicate these flowers, though, so I will probably be working on that eventually!
What did you think? Did you make something wicked crazy cool this week?
