Happy Easter

GrungyMonday 04- Textured Fades and Distress
After missing last week I am  so happy to be able to join in this  weeks challenge to Celebrate the Techniques and Products of Tim Holtz
There is a vidio link to show you how Tim uses this technique, so pop over to Linda's at Studio L3 to get all the information and see the Fabulous examples.
This card is made using  two  of my embossing folders. Terracotta and Butterscotch paint daubers. Copper metalic rub ons. After colouring the butterflies, they were covered with glossy accents then distress stickles.
A couple of stickers from the Seasonal Stack and a few bits and pieces from my stash to finish it off.

G C 96  Colour Challenge
Copper, Ginger or Rust
A bit late I know but I have realised my colour scheme also fits this challenge.
Its the Third Annual Colour Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. More gorgeous, inspiring pieces to see.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you taking the time to call.
