ReElly on a Roll....

Yesterday was a great day. Hels popped over ( well it is quite a trek from hers, so it is hardly popping over, but you know what I mean!), and we spent the morning doing all the admin stuff, and stuffed ourselves for lunch with nachos, and then we got down to the nitty gritty stuff of PLAYING and CREATING!!  I had asked that she bring over some Wendy Vecchi stamps for me to stamp, and as my desk is so tidy, she spotted something, and away she went. Such a creative mind! Me I LOVED it! Messy, inky, die cutting, although we nearly broke my new all singing , all dancing machine ( you know the one that works at the press of a button!), but we fixed it after a little omg sweaty moment!
This is both of our versions, and can you spot Hels's?
Of course you could! This is mine...a wooden spool distress inked in rusty Hinge, sprayed in mica mists, of course, where would I be with out them? I added some of Tim's scrummy tissue tape to the reel middle and some string ( Hel's idea.. she is full of them :) 
 I attached it to a large Tattered Flower cut out in Mountboard, stamped with one of Wendy's stamps. I double stamped the large and medium butterflies onto Grungepaper, and glued them together- PERFECT fit!  The antennae are little flower stamens glued in with wire to hold them in the spool. Two of Wendy's leaves, distressed inked and cut out on grungepaper, added to the effect.
The saying fitted perfectly on an Adage ticket, perfect with a memo pin! Finally I added a mini grungepaper rose, this one is tiny, and just finished it off. These flowers are addictive!
This is the first time we have "played" in a while, and Hels, thank you it was a fun day :)))
Have a truly creative day
