Live, laugh, love.....

Hi again!

Two posts in one evening!!

Well......following on from my earlier post I have really got carried away with the funky foam and made even more flowers and butterflies to make a wallhanging for my home using, of course, my newest fave distress ink....Peacock Feathers!!

I used my laptop to generate the 'Live, Laugh, Love' sentiment and printed it out in teal ink. I glued this to a chipboard blank and then inked all over with the distress ink. The roses, butterflies and swirls were all die cut from funky foam using my Big Shot Pro....and then inked over lightly with the distress ink. I also cut 2 butterflies from shrink plastic, shrunk them in the oven and inked those also.

Here it is.....
