colour challenge, winners........

Hi!!
I wanted to make another card for Dawn's color challenge and this card is 100% inspired by Dawn! I LOVE LOVE her layered butterflies....sooooo PRETTY!! And I watched her 'How to tie a bow' tutorial and ta da!!!!!!! I made a perfectly pretty bow!!!! I have to buy some ribbon now!!!





I hand cut the butterflies (I ordered some butterfly dies...yay...they are on their way!!). I stamped the blue with Polka Dot Basics and embossed the brown. The yellow rose is my handmade fimo rose.







And now for the Valentine's giveaway........

Such a cute sheep.... love the card - great distressing.


Congrats winners..........please email me your addresses (for the buttons) and emails for the digi stamps!!!


I thought I'd share a little........this is a picture (not out of my head...it's from one of my art encyclopedias) I started drawing when I found out my father had cancer. I often love to look at my art books for inspiration and when I came across this drawing I connected with it! It was a very lonely, sad and stressful time in my life......it took me a long time to finish because at one point (when my father was at his worst...before he died) I couldn't work on it..........a few months after he died I started to work on it again...it was my therapy..........my mother in law framed it for me and it hangs in my living room....and it's comforts me. I coloured it with very cheap pencil crayons I bought at the corner store!! ;)


sorry about the reflection...you could see my living room ;)!




This is another I drew (not from my head)...it's by one of the artists from The Group of Seven...can't remember his name....I just really really liked the colours and mood of this painting.....I used oil pastels.




 Anyways...........this post is way too long...sorry about that! Pop by Squigglefly and check out the latest releases including mine!!!
Have a great day and thanks for popping by!!

materials - stamps (PTI), my handmade fimo rose, cardstock, pp (PTI), ribbon, hand cut butterlies, scallop scissors.

I liked reading your "long" post (have you seen some of mine :) First, I adore your card for Dawn's challenge - everything on it is perfect, including the bow; must go there and read how to do that, as I struggle with them. And you are a darling for choosing me for your heart and flower buttons! Thank you so much - they'll be treasured.

Wow, what stunning colors on your card Jane!

Karen from MI said...

Oh Jane, I am AWE struck at your drawings. Art to me is so "personal" and I often wonder when I look at paintings, sketches and more, where the artist is coming from in their life at that time. The drawing of Christ is BREATHTAKING and to think that you were so taken with your own father's pain! I am so sorry for your loss, Jane. I know this is why you have such a giving nature about you. I am convinced of this Your parents brought you up to be a beautiful woman and Mom. I LOVE all of your work and admire who you are, too. Thank you for sharing this intimate part of your life. Love, Karen co
