You Are Loved 2

Hi, everyone! I made one last card for the STAMPlorations Hey Love Hop and Linky! Have you joined yet? There are only two days left! STAMPlorations has kindly offered us two free colouring sheets, and this is the second time I've coloured these flowers, called STAMPlorations Love Doodled A2 Card Front. You will remember I coloured it the first time here, and I coloured the other free card front here.

I wanted to make a totally different card than the first one so this time I used my Distress Oxides and blending blushes to colour the flowers. The Distress Oxides dulled the black outline of the image so I traced over it with a black fineliner and then fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape. I added Teal Glitter Glue (Studio G brand) in the flower centers, and for the "You Are Loved" words, I filled them with Nuvo Glitter Drops - Silver Moondust.  The white panel has been embossed with Cuttlebug Cross My Heart, and I adhered three punched butterflies in sage green, each topped with a pale green gem.

STAMPlorations is also having a promotion this month to share our wish list.  Here's mine:

Very Pretty with the glitter in the centre of the flowers finishing them off. Using the oxides for colouring has given a lovely soft look. I don't use mine often enough. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me. Hugs Mrs A.
