I'm Jinxed.

Why me? I made this card last night and the last thing I did was add black stickles and leave it to dry on it's own, near no-one! I went to take a photo this afternoon and it was covered in black stickles and the big butterfly had lost one of its' pearls. Why? How did this happen? I left it flat on the table and went to bed! It looked as if the stickles had been blown across the image. So nothing else to do but take it off and redo the  image. This time I used a glue pen and black glitter!

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Colouring :- Promarkers and Flexmarker.
Butterflies :- Martha Stewart Punches.
Sentiment & DP :- LOTV.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Butterflies stamped with Hero Arts Old Letter Writing and embossed in white.
Glamour Dust, black glitter and ribbon.

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Sketch Saturday :- Sketch.
In the Pink :- Things with Wings.

I'd best go and make the tea now and get my washing in. Lucky me I can do my ironing this evening. Well better that than tomorrow on my day off. Last public holiday this year. Nothing between here and Christmas.  Well I'm having a few days off to babysit this month. Some of you might say that's not a holiday but after being stuck in the post office for 2 weeks without a day off babysitting my grandkids sounds good to me.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later.

  2. Now then Kat, I am so relieved (for me) that this happens to others too - just HOW does that happen? I've left perfect cards and next morning they are covered in plips plops and smudges. I am glad you had the energy to re-do the image as this is soooooooooo gorgeous! Hugs Sxx

  10. This is so nice. Beautiful design. How can i design like this wonderful card for the Plastic Card? I really appreciate this.

  11. Poppies again Kat so you know I love this one, even if it did take you to attempts.

    Enjoy your days off babysitting, the good thing about grandchildren is we have fun with them but leave them with their parents and go back home.

    Sorry I've not been by for a while, not been so good then a fall on top put paid to me doing much for a few days beyond scheduled posts.

  12. This shade of purple attracts viewers a lot and for business plastic cards for a florist it`s a preferable choice...
