Another puzzle piece and an ATC

I'll start with the puzzle piece. I added the embellishments on this. It's a really pretty purple and blue theme. I used Fantasy Fibers in a light blue and a dark purple to pull the color out of the darker flowers. Chris Gill added this beautiful girl to the front and some sparklies on her flowers and around the edges. The metal flower in the middle of the fibers, I really like that flower. I have to remember where I got them so I can get more.

The ATC is for a swap I'm in. It's a one for one swap, so I send this directly to my partner. I used a background called "Silken Mist". It's a Technique Junkies technique using Twinkling H20s. I love Twinkling H20s. They're so pretty! I stamped on the background with SU! stamps (the flower and leaves). The bird is a See-D's stamp. I used Starry Night Palette Hybrid ink . The flower image is from Starving Artistamps Artful Inkables line. I love that lily. It's stamped in Jet Black Stazon on fabric I painted with Lumieres. I used alcohol art markers to color the leaves green and edged the flower with Stickles. the shimmer of the fabric is amazing, and it was so easy to cut out and paste down onto the paper.

In other news, my mother in law continues to do well at the nursing home. Last I heard, she was up walking the length of her room and back. We didn't go see her this weekend because my husband has the flu. He's sick as hell and I'm hoping a) that he gets better very quickly, and b) that no one else gets it. He's miserably sick. Poor guy.

I'm working on my project for SS Reflections and for other submissions in March. I'm stamping a little bit again. I always forget how much fun it is to stamp. I love to stamp and color. I just don't do so well at putting it all together. I get bored at that point. :o) I'd rather mess in paint and ink.
