WITH LOVE

Before I begin with this weeks DT creation for Creative Expressions I have some BLOG CANDY to give away, a Christmas Gift from me to you my followers. I would simply like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and to say a huge thank you to all my loyal followers and to my new followers. Thank You.
My BLOG CANDY includes:  2 Bird Houses, Tim Holtz Woodland Tree, Woven Corners, Wooden Heart, Double Sided Tape, Buttons, Slate Hanging, Decorative Tape, Microscope Slides, Wooden Spool, Wooden Letter A, Wooden Peg, Mini Bodice, Mini Spools, Wooden Mini Trees, Glass Hearts, Beer Mats.

To be in with a chance of winning the BLOG CANDY, simply follow my blog and leave a comment below. I will draw a winner on New Years Eve. If I get over 100 comments I will add more goodies to the box. THANK YOU.

Now onto my DT piece for Creative Expressions:

This week I am using the fabulous Henna Petals stamp from the Singles range from Creative Expressions.
I have created a square card stamping the background with the Henna Petals image using Aquamarine Archival Ink and then matting the design onto Teal Foundations Card.
I stamped the Henna Petals image 5 times onto White Foundations Card and cut out the layers and then adhered together to create a dimensional centrepiece which I then added to a piece of Teal Foundations Card and added to the centre of the card front.
Three butterflies have been added to the card cut from the die from the Butterfly Couture Creations 3-in-1 Set. I melted some Beeswax into a Project Pan using a Melt Pot and then dipped each butterfly into the hot Beeswax. Once cool I applied Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax over the butterfly to highlight the wonderful texture and design. 'With Love' has been added to the top of the card using the Simple Sayings Stamp Set from Tim Holtz.

Don't forget it is "Fun Time Friday" once again on the Creative Expressions Facebook page, simply leave a comment and you could be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
