Butterfly, flutter by please...

 I know, these are unusual colors for me... but I have to use all my supplies, don't I?
I've used 'Te gekke krijtjes' (yellow and white) to make a resist after I embossed the cardstock, and before spraying it.

A mini frame, with a dragonfly..

 I first went through my basket with some leftover pieces of colored cardstock for the background. I found two pieces, but they were both too small. 
No problem, just tear one part, and stamp a script on the bottom part. 
The dragonfly has been stamped on watercolor paper and on some acetate from packaging. I cut them out, and colored the first with distress paint and heated the second one with the heat tool, so the wings would be lifted, to get a 3D effect. 
The mini frame is really mini, only 8 x 8 centimeters. It was really ugly to start with, and ready to be thrown away, after years of getting yellowish in the sun, as some wood tend to do.  I painted it with white acrylic paint after a few layers of gesso. I painted a thick layer of quick crackle and let it dry overnight. I painted it with another layer white acrylic paint, and watched it crack. After it dried, I added some color with distress ink tea dye, and some Pan Pastel, and misted it with water to let the color run over the crackled background. I stamped the same script as mentioned in an earlier step onto the crackled frame.  

 Hope you like it!

Anemone time ...

It's anemone time of year, and bright yellow colors!
It's just raining here in Holland, no spring weather to be seen, but we can still enjoy stamping spring!
