Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Here is my take on the current theme!
For my entry, I used the oh-so-cute Butterfly Express stamp. I wanted to make it look like the butterfly literally pulled our little friend right off the background of the card. To achieve this, I cut the stamped image apart and suspended the butterfly above the card with a piece of acetate. I used embroidery floss for the "kite" string. I couldn't decide on what color I wanted the butterfly to be...so I made it every color. I wish there really were rainbow butterflies!

  3. PURE genius to use acetate to suspend that string above card and how clever to color in that lovely butterfly in rainbow colors. Loved seeing the Mousey flying out of the panel too. Those dry embossed clouds are super cool! FABULOUS work Torrey Teamie!
