Simon Says Tuesday Trigger - Frame by Frame

When I first saw the current Tuesday Trigger: Frame by Frame at Moxie Fab World I was stumped. The crochet frames overwhelmed me and I really wasn't sure how to use the image. I do have a few crochet flowers that I pulled out and left on the corner of my desk to see if inspiration would come.

Then I saw the new challenge at Simon Say Stamps is Anything Goes, but encouraging you to use Martha Stewart products, an idea started to form. One of my all time favorite Martha Stewart products is her butterfly punches and there are butterflies in the framed images in the Trigger.

I started with a circle from Pink Paislee Artisan Elements that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Pink Bubblegum. I blotted the spray before it dried to get a more muted color, but the shine is still there. I also sprayed a rectangle of textured white cardstock with Blue Skies Glimmer Mist. 

Before adhering the circle to the card panel, I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment with Memento Toffee Crunch ink in the bottom right corner.

This close up shows the color and shine from the mists.

The butterflies were punched from three shades of vellum and randomly adhered with a dot of Glossy Accents in the center of each, giving the impression that they are floating on the card.

I came very close to giving away my small collection of mists last summer, but today I am so glad they are still hanging around the office.

I just can't seem to put the vellum away. Last night I met up with a few crafty friends and spent some time cutting vellum snowflakes with borrowed dies, so expect to see them appearing on projects before long.

Thanks for stopping by,
