A Touch Of Romance

Perhaps I should have saved this until Valentine's Day but I made it at the weekend and wanted to share it. OK so I missed blogging yesterday but I'm back today so it's better than my past record! My friend Sonia gave me two Ikea mirrors a couple of years ago and I made the Tim Holtz inspired one that I blogged earlier in the year and then painted the second red to match my bedroom - I put it in a bag and forgot about it til now!

I bought the black 'flower' in Boots in the summer - it's made of black feathers and originally had a clip on the back so that you could wear it in your hair! I added a Fancy Ideaology Accoutrement to the centre 
and one to the opposite corner - I knew I'd be able to bring myself to use them eventually with the right project! The black flourishes are die cut from black velvet paper and the letters are a mixture of chipboard and grungeboard. I have had the fabulous butterfly panel in my 'special things' box for some time - I made it on a UTEE workshop at the Stamp Pad and needed a special project to use it in as I love it so much.

So this is my first 'Something New' creation - hope you like it!

  2. Yep, I think "dramatic" is the right word - love the butterfly piece!
