Simon Says Challenge says Tim Holtz, you need to create anything you want using at least one Tim Holtz product. We on the DT were lucky to have some products sent to us from Heidi and I so wanted to do something really arty, big mistake. I love arty, I love it watching it demo-ed, I love admiring it but I just can't create it. So with several things not working and the rubbish bin overflowing, I kept to my cute roots, which is what I should've done in the first place.
First the paper is BG Wisteria, the spray of flowers are from Wild Orchid you can blame Bev for them she had a link on her blog but lucky for me they were on desk waiting, for somewhere to put them.
The butterflies and the frame are Grunge board, the butterflies have be painted with Ranger Paint dabbers, I gave them two coats and them embossed them with the cuttlebug and finally very gently sponged some distress ink over them, almost forgot some stickles on the tips of their wings.
The frame was cut out of a piece of Grunge board, added some cut out corners to give some depth but it didn't work that well but I love the crackle paint its such fun to watch it crackle and I just sponged some ink again over the crackle pain to give it a bit of definition.
Phew that was bit long winded but if you are like me and can't do arty, do cute.
