Kinda Eclectic and Silver Accents

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Kinda Eclectic and Silver Accents

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Kinda Eclectic and Silver Accents Close Up

You know, I’m the kind of girl who reads the rule book then throws it out of the window (first having used the pages as practice for prototypes….), but that is kind of me.

I love flowers and nature, but sometimes, I fancy seeing them in different colours! If anyone is a Mum who’s read Mr Men books, Mr Silly and Mr Nonsense are right up my street!

So today, I decided to paint my leaves pink. Okay so they’re not painted, but heck, why not! And aren’t they rather lovely?

In soft Pink Pirouette they look charming. And with Rose Red to accent the butterfly and sentiment, I half thought about adding in pearls, but decided to go with rhinestones instead. And that then had the knock on light bulb moment of adding in that strip of Glimmer Tape!

It’s cute, a little unusual in colours, but that’s fine by me!
