I also just realised that this colour scheme ties in with the new Beauty and the Beast live-action movie, so the Beauty/Beautiful theme works for that inspiration too. I think this is a colour scheme we will see move of in 2017.
I stamped the word art BEAUTIFUL with a Technique Tuesday stamp and WOW slow-drying embossing ink, then heat-embossed with Midnight Dream powder. I wanted to convey the Beauty of spring with Butterflies, Flowers and Birds. I echoed the Beauty theme with the word art quote by John Keats "Beauty is truth, truth beauty".
I layered up some Whatnots, distressing the edges with ink.
I stamped a large butterfly onto paper (Kaisercraft - Bonjour) and cut it out, then I stamped and heat-embossed 3 small butterflies. (Prima - Fairy Belle) with Wow powders - Daytona Sands and Iridium blend.
added some micro beads in places to add texture.
I heat-embossed some chipboard swirls and these lovely chipboard Poppies from Blue Fern with Stampendous enamel. It's a marbling enamel with a mix of deep blue and gold - yummy!
I stamped the word art from Paperartsy Eclectica with Faded Jeans DI and cut it into strips.
I added some Prima flowers and one I made with a quilling die.
