Darcy Month 7 - Live Love Laugh

I've been meaning to make a start on my entry for Darcy's Month 7 journal page since she first posted it, but here I am with just a few days to go...
I have used largely the same colours and several of the same stamps as Darcy, but have changed the arrangement as my journal is smaller.

 my Antarctic spray doesn't show up, don't think I put enough paint in the water.
 strips of embossed metal drying
 

 had to use a different image for my recess, as the page is too small for the face Darcy used, I used the butterfly from HP1203
 all the elements in place - the hand I used isn't mine as that was too big to use lifesize - this is a Judikins stamp, bit small, but I did cut it out and use the space as a stencil so you get the idea!

I didn't have room for the rays that Darcy used so opted for this instead, using Claret as my background and a white marker to doodle.
 my recessed butterfly
 and the lovely hearts
and finally doodled round the punched circles, I used thin card so they're not as dimensional as Darcy's, and my Pewter paint looks a bit pink, it tends to separate rather and I didn't mix it up very well!

finished page.
This month we have learnt: to use a recess, mixing up spray paints, using punch outs, embossing metal, adding doodling.
