Team Day

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend,
in spite of the cold weather!

We had a lovely lunch out with Alan's parents,
and his Brother and sister-in-law, yesterday,


and Saturday I had a fab day at Sarah's 
with our lovely Starlets team.
We were thoroughly spoilt with projects, swaps, samples,
that we all contributed to, and even little gifts,
as well as lots of tea and biscuits of course!

Here's a pic of some of my swaps:  
I've been getting very inky fingers, experimenting with the 'baby wipe' technique!
I inked the background square using a wipe shaped into a 'mushroom',
adding drops of Stampin' Up! refill inks,
which I then just dabbed onto an A4 sheet of white gloss card randomly!
I then made an ink pad again using a wipe, folded this time, adding droplets of ink.
I used this to stamp loads of butterflies onto gloss card, and punched them out.
I mounted the butterflies onto plain card stock, by punching out more butterflies,
cutting them in half horizontally, and adhering them slightly spread apart.
I punched some itty butterflies from the remnants of my 'background'.
I used my home made ink pad to stamp loads of 'spares',
but it will keep for a good while in an airtight container.
Colours used...mainly, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, with Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series Paper.
Ink Refills Brights Collection.
