Unusual Wing-It Challenges

Hello friends ,
I am totally enjoying my crafting journey these days and making lovely stuffs for all my loved one :)

I have some great news,
Jaya is back with a BANG with a wonderful challenge,
Do drop in some love join her new challenges.......always love her ideas!
I made this for Jaya  for her comeback challenge

I made this Fridge magnet photo frame  from scratch using the same tutorial as earlier here .
I have a new addition in my Craft room Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine .
I have used die cuts from- Swirly Hydrangea Die  from Itsy Bitsy for the flower  here:)

The Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine lets you create perfect shapes and emboss beautiful textures, all with no wires or software. The Big Shot is an excellent die-cutting machine for beginners and more experienced crafters alike. Simply turn the handle to spin the smooth, heavy duty rollers on the machine, and let the machine work its magic on your paper, card or fabric as it passes through.

Design and create your own one-of- a- kind cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, home d├ęcor, fashion, altered art, quilting and more at the turn of a handle. You'll have professional quality creations at your fingertips.

My interpretation  when I started it was colours of the picture , later when I used the flower die cut I remembered sharpening my pencils & rolling the dust into lovely flowers and hence used the them in same colour !

 Have made 3 swirled  roses  & 3 bling on the butterfly

Supplies used
CHIPBOARD, flourishes & flower die cut -Itsybitsy
Pattern papers
handmade paper
butterfly punch
Playing along
Thanx for dropping in!
