Belated Mothers Day

Welcome back!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I keep putting it off! But I’m here now.

I made this butterfly for my amazing Mum for Mother’s Day (4 weeks ago!). I believe, but don’t quote me on it, that the butterfly is from Typo. I haven’t been able to find another one there and wish I bought more than one because it turned out so pretty and now I want one to look at everyday!

So here is a photo of the butterfly in progress.

WIP Butterfly

I wasn’t happy with it and thought the body of the butterfly needed to be defined more. So here I added more details to the body and made it flow more. This was the final product!

Finished Butterly

Here are the beautiful flowers I bought for Mum as well. We don’t get tulips here and Mum wanted them last time I went shopping. They’re just so cute. They all smelt so good!

Mother’s Day Card

Of course you can’t have a celebration without a card. Here I made a very simple card. It’s actually the second one I made. The first one wasn’t working out but I’m very happy I decided to change the card completely and ended up with the following instead!

I hope you all liked my creations. I will be back to post some more things soon!

Simply vivid vases

Last card for today – I tried to make this one simple to go with the sketch from Case this sketch.
Here is the sketch:

I’m not overly happy with what I produced but I’m putting up the card regardless. I went for a watercolour background to keep the simplicity of the sketch. 20140330-211101.jpg I stamped the image from vivid vases and used the paper piecing technique to bring back some colour to the image. Underneath I stamped the sentiment. I finished off the card by placing a line of diamontees underneath the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.
