The picture is of my DSS and his GF. They are so cute together. I first painted the heart with distress crackle paint, then inked it with distress ink and then covered it with distress stickles. Don't you just love the little birdie stamp and the precious butterflies? The flourish is cut with my Cricut.
The second LO is a photo my BIL took of the children of one of his collegues. Isn't that just the cutest picture ever? I had to scrap it. I used a MS border punch and the swirls are cut with my Sizzix.
This picture of Nike was taken when she just met her future husband-to-be. I embossed two metal strips which I decorated with pearls. The flourish is made with my Cricut.
Another picture of Nike, taken last year. I inked the ribbon with distress ink.
This is one of the last pictures taken of my grandma. She was 98 years old when she passed away. I LOVE the gorgeous butterfly frame which was included in the Embellishment Add-on Kit. I colored it with Glimmer Mist and decorated it with liquid pearls. The tule butterfly is from the January kit.
I used this patchwork design already several times, but it is such a great way to use your scraps. And of course I wanted to use every last bit of paper of this kit. The photo is my BIL and his niece. She totally adores him and wants to be just like him LOL. The die-cut is made with my QK Revolution. The title and bird are made from TSS metal, the metal rose is made of TH foliage. The metal corners are TH too.
The last LO I made for the Swirly Girls Club February Challenge that Robin is hosting on the Swirlydoos website. It is open to everybody, so come over and play along! The challenge is to have negative space and to use 4 photo's. I used the last bits and pieces of paper of this kit, embossed a metal heart and gave it grungeboard wings, which I inked, stamped and painted.
