Green Tara  lace!!
Here and there I have added pieces of the diamante trim!
The chipboard firefly is Scrapmatts!

Below you can see the GORGEOUS big butterflyivory, hot pink and
 pink roses, the amazing cobweb mesh in pink and bud n bow pink!

To give texture to the beautiful Scrapmatts doll, I have made a bow
 using the gorgeous coloured jute ribbon!

"Moments" - Scrapmatts, Studio 75 card

Hello my friends!!

This is a layout I made using Prima's BAP for April..
I have used CB8001 Circles and CB4061 Assorted Words 17
To create the look on the word "Moments" I painted the chipboard white, went over it with glimmer glaze "pink lady", with a brush I added a little glimmer glam "Mermaid", I dropped some dylusion "turquoise" and glimmer mist "Bahama blue and then went over the whole piece with crackle accents

For the circles I followed the same process but instead of crackle accents, I covered them with crackle paint "rock candy"
Now, to create that look on the background, I used a few dylusions and raised the paper so they drip and then I used a stencil, texture paste and stamps!!!
For the look below, I used dylusion mist and then I started blowing air straight at it in various I make sense? LOL!!

This is a tag I made using CB3007 Tags 03CB1077 Bird Cages 03

To make the crackle effect I used Martha Stewart "Weather crackle".

I painted the cage blue, added some white paint randomly and heat embossed some clear glitter powder here and there! The bird was painted white and heat embossed with the glitter powder.

This is very simple..I painted the cage black and randomly added some gold..

And a little sweet card for my mother!!!

Materials used:
Chipboard: Scrapmatts
Flowers: Green Tara & Prima
Paper: Prima & Studio 75 & Kaisercraft
Mask: Prima
Crackle medium: Martha Stewart & Ranger
Paints: Ranger

With the layout I am entering April's "Prima Bap" and "Bird is the word" and with the tag I am entering "Get Creative."

Sorry for the long post!
I hope I didn't bore you to death, hahaha
Till next time, have a great weekend ;)
