... Aaaand another recycled card...

The image was salvaged from an old card. It had one of the flower heads decoupaged, so have left that on, just inking around the edges and glittering the centre. Had to alter it some more, though, so stamped the harlequins on, using Versafine Onyx Black, but the third stamping. Then stamped the SU stamps 'bloom' and the 'blossom' definition over the top. The butterfly was stamped quite a while ago, and the ink has worn off in the middle, but I quite like the ethereal quality it has now as a result. The pearl sprays are deliberately left like that. I like the way they resemble the catkins (I think that's what they're called).. the little furry buds.. on a pussy willow... if you squint a bit..

  2. Hi Chris

    Something very odd going on, I can see I have missed several recent posts and checking back none have showed up on my reader. Checked and I am still there as a followrs, so really don't know and can only apologise for being absent.

    Please you are still on the recycling and this one is another beauty. I was telling my hubby the other day what you had been doing and he was very impressed - he's heavily into recycling - just hope I'm not next in line !

  6. Hi Chris. Was good to see you today, even if you did have to call me, I really didn't look properly...sorry, I'm always doing that.

    Anyway, love the fact you are recycling, such imaginative ideas. This card is beautiful, it features two of my favourite things, flowers and butterflies, fab.
