Your In My Heart

Our Challenge over at Sweet Stamps this week IS

 Today I am sharing something completely different then I have done before ,for a design team assignment.
This is a canvas piece I made with several stamps from Sweet Stamps.
here is my list of supplies:

Bold Butterfly Large 627


Wanted to share a couple views.
The canvas was covered with various sheets of dictionary pages,tissue sheets and fiber papers.
A lot of my inspiration has been coming from Tracy from Helmar. Almost every week she shares a project on Ustream that always motivates and inspires.
Recently one of my friends passed away and this was a piece I made to remember all the memories I had about her and our friendship.
 I used some wonderful lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon
I used various colors of Creative Inspirations paint to give the base different shades.
I even got to use a charcoal pencil to outline the hand drawn heart.
I did use H2o's on the butterflies
I love how the butterflies are dimensional and many colors of the rainbows.
  So this is my LOVE post this week, I would LOVE to have you join our challenge at SWEET STAMPS.
