I had just the best weekend. We went to Ally Pally on Saturday and I met some lovely people and I bought lots of crafty stash. Then on Sunday we went to Beatles Day at the White Rock Theatre in Hastings with two friends. Altogether it was a stella weekend. There was not much time to craft though. I am still on Easter holidays which is fab. I might get a bit of time to catch up. We are away again next weekend this time in Devon.
I made this card to enter the Butterfly Challenge #28 Butterflies and Music Notes. I would like to enter it for Pixie's Snippets Playground - 172 I used a few snippets to make this including the page of an old music book.
I made the background first using Visible Image butterfly stamps. I stamped the large and the small butterfly with Walnut Stain and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink they were then heat embossed with a clear powder. I inked over the page with Old Paper Distress ink and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I cut a square from a page of an old music book and I stamped the large butterfly with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.
I cut the Tattered Lace Music die from some snippets of white paper and added them to the design.
Here are some of my photos from Saturday at Ally Pally. It is an amazing building, where they hold the Big Stamping and Scrapbooking show twice a year.
This is Pam Smith she is on the Creative Expressions Design Team. I got to know her when we were on Sam Poole's Design Team together.
Mark and Helen from Visible Image they make wonderful stamps. Mark told me that he sits in the evening cutting out the stamps by hand, that is dedication.
John Lockwood he is also on the Creative Expressions Design Team. He was so nice to me, I did bring him jelly babies, he gave me some dazzlers.
Jenny Redfern she is a freelance demonstrator and she was on the Samuel Taylors stand. I got to know her through Facebook. It is so nice when you meet Facebook friends in real life.
Julia Watts and Phill Martin both on the Creative Expressions Design Team. I got to speak to Sue Wilson as well, mostly about cruises, but I didn't get a photo.
Finally this is Florence she recognized me from Do-crafts site it was lovely to put a face to a name.
My stash from the show I can't wait to have a play.
Just a quick reminder of the card I made.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
