CANDY NOW CLOSED
CLOSES FRIDAY 26th FEBRUARY 2010
Between the terrible weather and family seasonal illnesses I feel like I've been out of action forever!!!
As a late Blogoversry celebration I've made this box for someone to win. There's also a small bundle to go with it - Butterfly stamps, a pack of acetate sheets, black holographic & crystal ultrafine glitter, a pack of small gemstones and a black Sakura Glaze pen.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will draw the winner on Friday 26th February.
I am happy to post Internationally.

I always edge the butterflies using a black Sakura gel pen - it punches the black forward after colouring.
Black holographic glitter is perfect for defining the body markings and wing tips.
Crystal glitter can be used on it's own - it allows the underlying colour to shine through.
I often mix it with coloured glitter to give more sparkle and it acts a little bit like adding water to watercolour paint - making the coloured glitter translucent.
I wrap a small amount of Blu-Tack round the end of a fine embossing tool to pick up the small gemstones when I'm gluing them to the panels, it's much easier than using tweezers.
I would like to say a BIG HUGE THANKS for your patience, support and encouragement over the past year it has meant so much to me.
