lilyandthelotus and smeared ink new challenge fussy cuts

Welcome to my blog.
What is a fussy cut I asked??? It is a image cut out..simply put.
I began thinking of my beginning days when I played in Tim Holtz inks..I flipped through old issues of Somerset magazines..than I looked through my images..Finally for me inspiration paid a visit and I sparked a idea on a idea that had been unformed so to speak for quite a while.
I love the columns and the butterfly..and I thought of my friends Birthday even though sadly it is mailed late. Terra owns and runs Smeared Ink with her sister Tori and they are really awesome people. The columns matched her she is foundation to Smeared Ink and the broken Column is a group of people despite the advertises in our lives we have strong friendships and a passion to support one another through thick or thin.Hence the butterfly..for through Smeared Ink I think we all rebirth our art many times over.

My favorites
Tim Holtz Distress
weather wood blue
and the dictionary slices were stained in
Tumbled glass
Butterfly I Specimen Jar Digi Set
Column I Digi set from Septem Liberalis Digi set
Thanks for stopping in and hope to see your challenge piece at
