Paperartsy Inspiration

Hi all, hope your having a fantastic bank holiday weekend.  I am at last feeling so much better and having a wonderful time sorting my craft room out and doing some much needed art playing.  I am spending some time today and tomorrow to load up posts for the entire week lol, I have that much to show you and of course most of it is using my favourite Fresco paints and stamps.
Right I'm here today to show you my creation for the Paperartsy Inspiration Challenge which this week the designers have been an array of us crafter's having the chance to show their talent in the amazing 3 up week.  My piece has been inspired by lots of the designers - Shirley Bampton with her awesome card,  Stephanie Ladley with her amazing background and Ruth Mescall with her beautiful shimmer.  I also have been inspired by Lesley Macgillivray for her fabulous extras, Kirsten Sheridan her wonderful canvas and Mark Sloof for his colourful Darcy steampunk bird, but I won't be finished today so I shall show it later on in the week.
I really do feel like I need to also mention the other 3 uppers as everyone's work was amazing and certainly did Paperartsy proud, the others were - Kathi RerekCazz WrightHelen LindfieldJacqui ChimesGail aka IonabunnyCraftyfieldJanet WarrenLesley EbdonDoreen O'BrienCarol PlumeJulie BellSteven MacariLisa WinnardMiriam GrazierHazel AgnewSusan JenningsMariette Van Leeuwen and Sandie Cottee.  I certainly wish I was one of them lol, a huge congrats to them all.

Now for my creation :-)

I made up with paints and stamps a sheet of card to cut the butterflies out of.
The shimmer (pearl glaze) was brayered on so some areas shimmered.
All products used are at the bottom of the page :-) 

Right I shall be off, I will be back tomorrow with my Creative Expressions DT creation which is another painty card :-).
Happy Crafting :-)

Love this background- it's gorgeous. Hope you don't mind me asking- but what's Kezzy short for ( if anything?). I used to get the same name when I was little!
