It's all about the purple

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good weekend.  The weather has been lovely and I have been making the most of you. We had a barbecue on Saturday and today was spent doing a bit of tidying up in the garden and relaxing in the sun.  Let's hope the good weather lasts.

I did manage to catch the shows that Imagination Crafts did on Create and Craft this weekend.  I even saw some of my samples.  Sue and Lisa did a fabulous job of demonstrating showing lots of lovely techniques.  I hope that some of you got a chance to tune in.

Here is one of the samples that I did using the Tile Butterfly Stencil, Princess Cupcake stencil and some lavender sparkle medium.  The printed cardstock is also from Imagination Crafts.

As you can see I used the stencil and sparkle medium for the butterfly.  I did the butterfly twice so that I could decoupage it to add dimension.  The princess cupcake stencil was used on acetate with diamond white sparkle medium a couple of times.  I then cut it out and overlapped the layers to create a flower.  I added some pearl embellishments, a bow and a dazzler to the centre of the flower.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do love reading all your comments and appreciate the time that you take to visit my blog.
