SeemasCrafts New Challenge - Butterflies

Welcome Friends, Crafters and Fellow Bloggers...
 
 
It's the start of a new month which means one thing.... A brand new challenge over on
 

 

SeemaCrafts is not only a Challenge Blog, but a shop as well. Seema makes the most gorgeous hand made embellishments and the butterflies used in the Design Team pieces this month are from the SeemaCrafts shop.
 
This months challenge theme is 'Butterflies'. It would be nice to see some butterflies as the main theme of the makes, rather than just small embellishments.
 
 
I hope you will take a look over on the Challenge Blog and Shop and hopefully the makes will inspire you to join in with this wonderful theme. There are crafty prizes up for grabs from one of our amazing sponsors...please see blog post for more details.
 
 

Here is what I have made....


 

What I used...

 
Canvas Board - from The Works
Butterfly Embellishments - from SeemaCrafts
Butterfly Stamps - from Kanban
Guesso - from The Range
Stayzon Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Various sized paper roses - from eBay
Lace and Ribbon from my stash
Skeleton Leaves
Pearl Spray
 

For the texture on the Canvas Board, I used Guesso mixed with some Distress Ink Re-inker. This makes a lovely clear textured layer with a colouring to it.
I loved making this piece, as I got very messy and was able to let myself go and just layer with ink and guesso and then more guesso lol
 
 
I hope you will take time to enter this great challenge.
 
 
Thank you for visiting, all feedback is welcome.
