Scrapbook Boutique August Challenge- Butterflies



Good Morning, hope you are gearing up for a fabulous day, as we are at 

Today is the beginning of another Inspiration Challenge and blog hop 


Making a card or project using  inspiration from the picture and include at least one butterfly.
 It maybe difficult to include just one, the more the merrier!



If you are following along with the blog hop you would have arrived from Narelle's blog- I bet you are inspired, if you get lost, you can always head to the SB blog and start from there!

The Blog Hop  prize is the Flower Soft- Fairies Set


You just need to leave a comment on each of the DT gals blogs  and a final one on SB Blog,  the  random winner will be drawn from there!
The hop will be open for 1 week, closing midday Friday the 17th of August, the winner will be announced on the SB blog on Saturday the 18th of August.

 Unfortunately the blog hop prize (as is the inspiration challenge) only open to anyone with an Australian mailing address.


We also have for you, our regular monthly inspiration challenge!
Make a creation  using the gorgeous  photo as inspiration, and  you could be the winner of the $30 gift voucher to Scrapbook Boutique
The Challenge will close on the 31st of August at 12midnight, the winner will be announced on the 1st of September


I have used the Tim Holtz Oval Embossing diffuser by running a small stylus around the inside of the oval (resting on a mouse mat), running around several times to get the oval crisp, then added in the lines with the scor-pal.
Be careful with adding the lines it is a bit tricky, check out this tutorial from the talented Marion!






Copics:
RV0000, RV10, RV21, RV23, YG11, YG13, YG17, C1




To continue on with the hop, your next stop is the wonderfully talented,  Sue's blog, enjoy her stunning creation!
