Scraps Of Elegance***Delightful***

 I must say, that Scraps Of Elegance Possibility kit ins one of the prettiest kits that I have gotten to work with. The colors are among my fave!! The yellow and lavender compliment each other so well . Ceste La Vie collection from Bo  Bunny is truly beautiful!! I think I may hoard the last few papers I have!! Last month I attended my nieces baby shower and had the opportunity to grab some photo's of my sisters granddaughter Nikki. Our little red headed beauty is a doll!! I chose to change this photo to black and white. It made more of an impact against the colors of the page.


 I used a couple more of the Dogwood Flowers that I did a tutorial on. I inked some of the yellow petals on the flowers with the gorgeous Viva Decor Inka Gold paint pot that came in the kit. I LOVE that stuff. A little goes a long way and the shimmer is amazing!!And of course using my Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die once again. The smaller roses were created using the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die and the gorgeous velvet paper that came in the Embellishment add on kit.


  I had to sneak in the beautiful purple Prima Flower from one of the packs in the add on Flower kit.


 I die cut the Tim Holtz birdcage using a scrap of the yellow paper in the kit.  I just added a few of the butterflies onto the cage.


I found that Tim Holtz distress ink in Milled Lavender was the perfect color to ink on this paper. I used my Prima mask to add design to the page. More purple flowers to flutter on the page, and I will leave you with the butterfly file I created to compliment the kit. I printed these out from a 4x6 piece of card stock to get these small sizes.


the velvet paper I used to mat the photo was punched with Martha Stewarts Rain drop punch around the page set. 

The small title was an old piece I had in my stash. It was silver metal and I just dabbed some acrylic paint on it.






You must go and visit the Scraps Of Elegance Blog  and the gallery to see what the design team has done with this gorgeous kit!!! I absolutely loved it!!! The add ons make it the more beautiful!!
Here is the butterfly file i created to use with the kit. Enjoy it!!
Thank you for visiting my blog to see my latest creation! A special Thank you to Melinda and Lisa for inviting me to share in your magnificent site, and design with Scraps of Elegance. xo

Hi Lisa, I have been on a search of your butterflies since you posted these. These butterflies are so beautiful...so I went to Pinterest, then to Swirlydoos (read ALL 39 pages on the forums) two days of searching. Now I know what an amazing artist you are. I have been receiving your updates, via email, for quite a while and I LOVE your work. Have you thought about designing some swordtail butterflies? Especially in black? I am so glad I found you!!!
