Follow your Heart

Hi all.  It has been an exciting week! As you can see from the blog hop announcement and from the badge from CC, I know proudly belong to their DT, so excited to take this adventure to new levels!!!
One of our challenges there at CC is to create a card inspired by Karen's card.  I loved her butterfly and I also wanted to play over at CCCB since Cheryl
is hosting a time after time challenge there.
I chose this gorgeus stamp by Prima and decided to color it with Tim Holtz distress markers.  And let me tell you I had F-U-N!!!
Since the stamp already had a clock in it I decided to xacto it and add a MM clock transparency for more impact.  In its own way it fits  iSpy challenge this week also! 




















here is a close up of what I did with the stamp, just loved playing with it!
Next up is a back in time photograph of my then baby with her Grandpa.
For some reason I never scrapped these photographs and they were perfect for this palette of grays and pinks with a hint of red...
I loved putting it all together, I cut like 4 different pp, then I used new Crate Paper, the dots in the back were done with Gesso and then flocked with velvet.  I just wish you could feel them...

I wanted to show you my hidden journaling, it moves and hides behind the photos and papers but it is all there....
I am so sorry about the 5 'o clock shadow but it was the best light I had all day and since the flowers are so bulky they created a shadow...
Well I hope I have inspired you to create
Hugs

Milagros

This is absolutely darling, Milagros. Such sweet projects. And talking for me; I LOVE shadows. Sometimes I even seek them for my detail shots. I find they create such a dramatic effect.
BIG congratulations on your new DT. You will dazzle them!
