Good luck card

It's a bit wet here, hope you are having some sunshine. Was asked to make a good luck card and this is what I came up with. The white background was embossed with a Crafter's companion embossing folder. The next layers was a brush background I made a little while ago and embossed it with a leaf embossing folder. I used my new Sheena Douglass die and stamp for the ivy. The sentiment is an Xcut die, the frame is a Sue Wilson die, the butterfly is a Memory box die and the flower die I can't remember the company. 
Hope you have a great Sunday.

Would like to enter this in the Alphabet Challenge: no designer papers.

Paper flower tutorial

I love making paper flowers and wanted to share this one with you. Cut and emboss three of the smaller flower dies from the Spellbinders rose creation die set. 

Use a pair of  tweezers to twist each petal on each of the die cut flowers.

Once you have all the flowers done, using a dye ink, edge the flowers with a complementary colour. 
I used pink on mine.

I used a glitter brad to make the final flower. Just layer up three of the flower dies small to large. 

It's so easy and quick to do. Hope you find this useful.

Painted tote bag

Hope you are having a good day. Sharing this tote bag that I painted for a friend's birthday.
I used a TCW 12x12 stencil for the background. I used three shades of fabric paints through the stencil. I found this cat image online and traced around it and painted it in black fabric paint. Used a raised black fabric paint to outline the cat and the background.
