Irene Tan has very kindly given her permission for us to use her beautiful scrapbook page to scraplift for our crop’s February scraplift challenge over at ukscrappers
. Check out her fabulous blog
– she is very talented and shares her ideas and tutorials. You will find this original page under 100%concentration in October 2009 with her description of how she put it all together.
I love all of this page: the colours, the layout, the bling, the photo…..all of it! I kept the colours and some of the general layout, I used mostly stamps rather than rub-ons (only 1 rub-on in the corner of my photo), I used some bling and butterflies, added one bloom but left out the lace and some of the smaller flowers and I didn’t rip my photo.
Here is my scraplift version- Ceara has just had a butterfly land on her nose!
The other butterflies were made using the napkin technique onto acetate and cut out which means they maintain a fragile look and you can see the colour of the background through them.
