I’ve been crafty this weekend

I’ve been having fun this weekend, with the swag that I’ve won or bought on clearance.  I’ve used the beautiful Tim Holtz Papillon stamp set (thank you Simon Says Stamp, where there are lots of giveaways, and you can buy Letraset and many other fantastic art and crafting goodies!) for a card (and a bleedthrumanade  I haven’t finished yet), and a wall-hanger that I won from Wiccababe (Thank you Debbi!).  I used the Wizard of Oz papers I bought to cover that.  I’m not sure how well you can see from the photo, but I followed this tutorial from Kami at No Biggie to get a spooky mirror effect.

I managed to get a really nice stamped image of my butterflies, and then I blew it when I used the Smooch Spritz spray to glitter it up.  The glittery effect is nice, but it’s hard to control the spray.  Since I messed up the image, I added some Smooch Accent Ink to make the butterflies look brighter.  I couldn’t get the glittery effect to show in the photos (naturally *sigh*), but it looks better in real life.
