I’m blaming Robin and her “Odds” Challenge for this huge embellie sneeze. She’s asked us to use odd numbers of things, as many as possible. There's a total rundown on what I've done in the Challenge forum at Swirlydoos.
Except for the small rosebuds, the chalk ink and the Crackle paint, this is all Swirly Stuff. The glitter glue, alphas, rhinestones and blue roses are from previous kits. I made the twisted flowers using Shona’s tutorial (available on the Swirlydoos Tips & Techniques forum). The butterflies are some of this month’s supply. (Each month, Lisa (StarSailor) provides us with images that are perfectly coordinated with the kit – a wonderful bonus embellishment!) Krissy even keeps us supplied with the Dusty Attic chipboard by stocking some in the store and by taking open orders from subscribers every month or so.
