Queen of the Crap & a Brainwave Challenge!

I have been selected over at Scrap Your Crap, by Simone and Greta, to be queen for 2 weeks! My first challenge as queen was to use paint. I used paint in two different ways here. The first was to use a butterfly mask by Heidi Swapp. I used a Suede spray paint for that. Super easy and quick! For the flowers I used a mixture of texture paste and acrylic paint. It gives it lots of dimension! When it was dry I cut each of the petals out and glued a button to the centers. All the paper is from Noel Mignon's store. It was part of her Treehouse kit from awhile back. I did my journaling on a tag and hid it behind the butterflies. I added some pretty vintage lace and a button to the tag.
See how lumpy the flowers are? Pretty cool 'eh?
Once again, WHY is this so dang SMALL? Can anyone tell me???? This week's challenge over at Treehouse was THIS sketch.
I used the heart from the Home Grown set. I stamped it using inks from Papertrey in Blush and Moonlight. The one heart with the star was crystal effected (see how I made that a verb?) and glitter was sprinkled over it. While still wet, I put the rhinestone star to the side. ( I am all about the BLING!) To finish it off, I added ribbon (another must on all of my cards!) and a homemade stick pin.
Check out the other girls' takes on this challenge!
