My daughters new puppy loves to snuggle. I love to snuggle him back. I grabbed this shot with my webcam the other day when I was puppy sitting.
Before I colored my chipboard pieces, I treated them with a coat of Dusty in Colour Navajo White.
Once the paint dried, I used Lindys Stamp Gang Magicals in Aloha Avacado to color the leaves, then dabbed on some Caribbean Blue Starburst spray for a 2 toned effect. I love the intricate details in the trendils of the vines.
I sprayed the Cuddles word from the Word Pack #11 set with one of the same colors I used on the background.
This is just a closeup of the butterfly and flowers.
The butterfly is a Tim Holtz Stamp that I stamped, copied and edited in Photoshop to get different sizes, then I cut out the different sizes. I colored them with Lindys Magicals. Magicals are gorgeous pigment powders that you can mix with any medium. I just used water to paint the butterflies. I used the Dusty in Colour Clear Crackle Varnish over the entire butterfly to give it the look of an old vintage brooch. I love the crackles!! There was a butterfly exchange over at Scraps Of Darkness/Scraps of Elegance , that my dear friend Lisa Novogrodski coordinated. I made some extra ones for myself!! These extras are what I used on my layout. I just didn't put the jewels on these.
I hope you get to join us for the Mood Board Challenge this month. It could be your chance to win some Dusty Attic goodies!! Please visit the Dusty Attic Blog to see more inspiration from the fabulous design team!!
