Lol, yes Sue, I was really happy when I found a pair of my son's jeans that were too small for him and had holes in the knees, meant I didn't have to use my own. Which is a good thing, since I wear mine most days! :)
Gorgeous as always. I love the layered die cut background and the textures of the embossing and the butterfly. Sensational twine flower!

LOL Sue.... what a story. I bet you really only wanted a new pair of jeans! Your butterfly is stunning. Love the idea of colouring it up. All up, one great card. Enjoyed our day's stamping today... you should be very proud of yourself for your CAS cards... can't wait for you to share with the rest of the world!

Lisa said...

O the sacrifices to be made for our crafting!! Funny story, Sue :) That gives you an excuse now to go and buy yourself a new pair!
LOVE LOVE how that butterfly turned- so cool- and the rolled yarn flower.
Have fun using up the rest of your new denim stash :)

Hi Sue, love the sacrifice, it was well worth it.
I shall have to see if one of the Grandchildren have grown out of their jeans as I no longer own any, or maybe I have a piece of paper for the Faux look.
By the way did you get my e-mail?
hugs Kimx

Wooo...Sue, the butterfly is fantastic! The embossed background is also fabulous. Love the delightful colors, too. Just gorgeous! ... :)

Rosemary said...

but sue... if you had waited then we would not have had the happy experience of seeing your gorgeous denim butterfly!! another fantastic work of art, my friend!! hugs & smiles :)

Brenda Brown said...

You do make me smile Sue, your post is fabulous both in pictures and words. The butterfly is gorgeous and the card you made for it. I think it would make a perfect pin, so if you made and sold some you could buy a new pair of jeans lol.
Have fun.

Wow, great tutorial! I was wondering how you got the denim to look that way, and now I know! But I am really hoping that your ankles don't freeze since you taxed them.

I love what you did with the challenge :)

The butterfly alone would have made the card, Onion! Your mad skills for turning one texture into another is superior and you gave a whole new life to this pair of jeans. I'm certain inspector #5 at the denim factory NEVER in a million years would have thought they'd end up on a card as gorgeous as this. I especially love that you used my favorite color for a bonus thrill!
Amazing card and very well explained tutorial...thank you. :)
Hope you have a great week!

OMG, this is BRILLIANT! I must get some of that gesso! Your pieces are always a work of art, Sue! And I was ON THE FLOOR when I saw the picture of the cut jeans, LOL!! Hugs, Marcdy

Anne Marie Hile said...

Well, from one gal who sacrificed her jeans to another....this is FANTASTIC!! I really need to learn how to use gesso because it truly creates such a beautiful effect. But the shading jut makes me swoon! Look at all of that pretty pink. *sigh* You rocked the challenge! :)

I'm hardly able to type as I'm laughing so hard & tears are streaming down my face! You just crack me up, Sue! I must say, your butterfly was worth cutting the jeans--gorgeous! Another wonderfully artistic creation!
