Embellish it Week 7 - Alter it.

One more week down 2 more to go hopefully...This weeks challenge was set by Nicky Amber. The criteria she set was to- Create your own patterned background, make and use at least 3 inches on your project, use a quote as part of your title, do not use alpha stickers on your project and lastly to create a handmade embellishment from fabric. So here is my take on the challenge.
So firstly I had to create my background. Its very simple but I think it looks effective. I used a fancy pants stamp, then I added more colour by adding paint to the Poland of the stamp flower. The butterflies you see are all made from off cuts of fabric as well as the rope and flower swirl. And oh my how Divine is the lace ribbon? My mum actually picked a whole bag of this up from an op shop..Couldn't of come at a better time :) Also lastly I have to give my mum a shout out as well for letting me use her word art as my title. You can find more of her awesome digital designs here. Below are just some close up views of the detail.
Anyhoos its raining and cold here today..and I have 2 cranky kidlets at the moment..sharing?? whats that word?? That's all they seem not to be doing atm and it always ends in tears.
Thank you for popping by...I totally love all your comments. Oh and be sure to go check out the Scrap N Craft with T gallery to see all the entries this week here.
