anyway, enough of the excuses and onto this weeks SCD piece....
This week, being the last Friday in June sees the last of the skinnis (3"x5") and it fell to Dawn to choose this weeks theme....and she chose
Flora and Fauna
Here is my skinni:-
so, the base is white card! covered with patterned paper, now that doesn't happen very often! another matching paper strip was placed to one side and gingham ribbon top and bottom. The flower and butterfly were stamped onto metal, embossed and filled and then painted with inka gold - this stuff is truely gorgeous! I was introudced to it whilst on the artsycrafts weekend and just had to get some! lush! the little saying is a paperartsy stamp which was edged with inka gold and then the entire piece covered with sepia accents. The butterfly has a glass tail which you can just about see!
This theme is the last one that Dawn will be choosing - with a new job and longer hours and a new home she has decided to step down from the DT. I would like to Thank Dawn for her committment and support - she was the first person I told about my "SCD" idea and she offered her support from the start - Thank You xx
Do pop on over to the SCD blog and see what the other DT'ers have created - and hopefully you'll be able to join us.
