I am at the Stampin' Up! annual convention in Salt Lake City. Actually I am in my living room getting ready to leave for convention tomorrow. I am going to set this to auto post on July 31st. Hopefully it will work!
This is one of my swaps for convention. Way too involved! But I like the way it turned out. I realized when I was printing out the recipe that I used a bit of ribbon from the last mini. Hopefully it will be in the new catty. I will tell everyone before I swap, so they know it has something expired, if it's not in the new catty. I hope it is, because I like that polytwill ribbon.
I used the new scallop edge punch and a new set we were able to preorder, Dreams du Jour. Ii watercolored the image with reinkers, then embossed it twice with Iridescent Ice EP. I didn't like it just embossed once, so I tried it again and liked the effect.
The DP is the new Bella Rose. New In Colors are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Pink Pirouette. I don't know if you can tell, but I used Versamark and the butterfly in the set on the Baja Breeze background.
I made the pink flower by repeatedly curling a piece of pink cardstock over the edge of a ruler until I had broken the fibers and I could separate the layers of paper. Then I used the Boho Blossom punch to make my own paper flowers.
Hope you enjoy the weekend! See you when I get back! Thanks for visiting.
