For Queen Sharon

I am so far behind in honoring the Queens and Featured Stamper at SCS.  This is for last week's Queen Sharon (aka shendrian).  I chose this card as my inspiration.



I've used the smoosh technique rather than the tissue technique and added a butterfly and embossed panel.

 I'm off to Pixies Snippets Playground since the heart was cut from some smooshed paper scraps left over from class and the butterfly was diecut from a snippet of black. I hope it's warmer there cuz it's a bit chilly here for playing outside!  Hopefully there's some hot chocolate to warm us up.

Thanks so much for the visit and your kind comments.

Enjoy!

I love the smooshing, Bonnie, and the embossed panel really sets it off.

Gorgeous, Bonnie! That smooshed heart is fabulous!

Oh that is so pretty Bonnie. The heart just sits perfectly in the embossed frame. It might be warmer in the playground but a lot wetter!!

Beautiful card Bonnie.

Plenty of hot chocolate going around in the playground, not to mention cupcakes and Sherbet dib dabs! Take your pick.

We'll send the stretch limo round for you shortly!

Great card! I'm always looking for ideas to use re-inkers. I see this smooshing technique in my near future. Thanks for sharing!

Saw my Bonnie over at my Benzi, and could quick link & pop in for a visit. (You wanna talk behind???). I'm loving this. I always look to see if I have the EF's you use. This one's a beauty, and I _Love_ this snippet heart. Lovely texture. Perfect on your EF. I see you mention in the last post about stencil class (can you repeat Behind!) and I'm so enjoying everyone's homework. I have only managed to view Lesson 1, but it was fab. No homework as yet. Glad they said it was lifetime! TFS & Hugs

Cynthia said...
