FnF Dies and Punches

Today's new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday's is to use your PUNCHES and DIES!

The last couple of cards I've made for this blog challenge team I haven't used an image for, so I though I'd use one for a change :)

Today I'm using Aisling you can find her in my Etsy shop, you can get any of my images with 10% off by quoting code SKIANDREA10 at checkout.

She's been coloured with ProMarkers and  a little black polychromos pencil.  I've then cut her out with two Spellbinders dies and edged it with Milled Lavender ink from Tim Holtz.

Aisling comes with a tiny butterfly as part of the image.  I've blocked this off in white when I printed it and chose to use the larger butterfly image Flutterby instead.  I printed this separately, coloured it in the same colours and then fussy cut it ready to go on the card. 

At the top left of the card you can see two butterflies which have been created using Spellbinders dies and then glued together.  Added to the centre of these are some pearl gems.

Underneath the image at the bottom left you can see a flower arrangement made up of some laser cut wood chip flourishes which I got from Scrap and Craft.  The flowers were all bought from Noor Design.

When I'd coloured the image I had it on a stack on purple and black papers ready to chose which ones  I wanted for the card.  I liked the way I happened to have them laid out so I decide to use them all on the card and do a creation going outside of the square.
The design papers are from Lili of the Valley, 13Arts, Prima Marketing, Maja Design, Craft & You (think I got them all!).  All the designs papers have been distressed.

To finish off I've added a few purple gems and a sentiment from Scrapiniec

Hope you love my inspiration today and we see you at the challenge
