Over at Country View Challenges, this month Brenda & the design team have set the theme of butterflies...........as I have quite a few butterfly stamps, easy peasy, right??? Almost....but not quite! At the weekend my Godmother gave me some money for my Birthday, so I bought my first few Distress Paints, which I've been itching to get my mitts on and today I got the time to have a wee play - oh my, they are just lush!! I made my background using, broken china, chipped sapphire, spun sugar & pickled raspberry. I squished them onto my craft sheet & spritzed them with water then just dragged my card through the paints until I got the desired effect. Then the problem arose, I didn't want to stamp too much over them, as I loved the effect I'd achieved........sad I know. So I opted for a saying & a butterfly embellishment instead, LOL!!! Hope you like the finished result.
The flourish stamp in the corner is from Wendy Vecchi Studio 490, Botanical Art set. Doily is a memory box die & sentiment stamp is from Inkylicious. The butterfly is a bead from my stash.
I'd also like to enter this card in Sunday Stampers challenge, where HELS has set the theme BLUE. Thanks for looking, hope you can drop by again soon!!
