Bizzy Becs Blue Butterfly DT - New release preview day 3
As you can see I decided to go with a linen textured cardstock for my WOW and coloured my image in with Copics. I then used most of my favourite dies, namely, doohickey swirl, doohickey flower and a Marianne Creatables which I layered the image onto with foam pads for extra dimension. The cluster I have used on top of the flower die is one that I received in my surprise package from Magnolia that I won off Mindy's blog a while back and I really love it, if anybody knows where I could purchase more of these could you please let me know as I've never actually seen them for sale.
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to hop on over to Bizzy Becs Store Blog for some more fabby previews and leave your comment here and there for a chance to win! Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

The doily is from Joanna Sheen and I've used a doohickey die again for the border on the dps.

For the luv of Magnolia!!
As always I have coloured Tilda in with Copics and used stardust stickles around the trims of her top. Sorry for the awful pics but I just can't seem to get the right lighting, think it's time to invest in a decent photo light box. The backing paper I have used is printed off a My Craft Studio cd that I have and the pearls are from my stash. All the blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Thanks for stopping by yet again!! Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
