i've had lots of fun experimenting on these, i've used shimmer paint on both which gives them a lovely subtle sparkly shimmer but its not showing up on the photos.
the butterflies are made with the Flight of the Butterfly stamps and punch. i sponged on bashful blue and pretty in pink inks then stamped in pretty in pink using the background Bella toile stamp and the swirl from Baroque motifs in regal rose ink.
the christmas tree was made from handmade card buttons(this was not my idea - a friend showed me it and she'd seen it on a blog- i can't remember the blog but if i find it i'll link to it) , I used Crystal Effects to add the sheen. i sponged close to coco ink and champange shimmer paint and used the En Francais background stamp (which i use on everything at the moment) some of the buttons have a sprinkling of dazzling diamonds to give them a bit of christmas sparkle.
thanks for looking - i will be doing the christmas tree as a class shortly, so drop me a note if you fancy making one yourself
