Here's what I've created for today:

No banner today, but mad frou frou! Using a Clear Scrap Frame as a base, a few Dreamweaver Alcohol Inks (Iceberg and Sugarplum) were spread on the back, and a bit of white acrylic paint swiped over the front. Stampendous flowers from the Cling Build a Bouquet set were stamped on Woodware's patterned paper pad, and cut out with the Build a Bouquet Die set. Some were left large, and others cut smaller, crumpled, and layered. A few of the Woodware white paper flowers were colored with the alcohol inks as well, and adhered with the stamped flowers on the frame. Leftover smudges from the inks all over my craft mat were thinned with isopropyl alcohol, and smeared over the butterfly garland, which was draped over the frame. An old page of poetry was ink-stenciled with the Dreamweaver Rose Tree and dye-based inks. Fast Finish from Beacon Adhesives was brushed over the back of the thin Clear Scrap panel that I inserted behind the frame, and poem was placed face down on the finish before another layer was brushed over the back. Finally, heavy sprinklings of Stampendous Color Fragments and Crushed Glass Glitter were adhered with a bit of Glossy Accents.
