Not All Who Wander

I love the My Mind's Eye™ papers, there are so many with wonderful sentiments on them, I have kept so many aside for scrapbooking but decided I needed to cut into them and use some for creating cards....




I have cut and embossed the sentiment out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the Classic Squares LG Spellbinders™ Nestabilities.  The Die has been used as a Stencil before removing the card, I have sponged using Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko Memento - Desert Sand.

 


The butterfly is designed by one of my favourite designers, Laura Kirste  for Penny Black®, Inc. - 
social butterfly stamp set.  It had been coloured using Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko Memento Markers, the shimmer is 3D Kindy Glitz - love the texture of this stuff!





 Finishing off with some added crochet lace.
