well here it is , challenge time again for anything goes and the theme is flutterby butterfly, things with wings, so here is my piece:
I decided to have a play with some under used distress inks, Tim stamps and a chunky atc...
I started by creating the backgrounds for all the sides of the block, using DI, picket fence stain, and Tim stamps.
The butterflies were coloured using distress markers direct to stamp..love the way this allows you to use the fab distress colours in such a precise way..not usually a pen girl!.The cogs are Tim die cuts, coloured using Di and embossed using distress embossing powder, which has fab release crystals allowing for a real distressed feel.. The quote is so beautiful, I love Tim's quotes, they are great!! The little bottles were filled with seed beads.I added some keys to the bodies.
The clock die again was embossed using distress embossing powders, and the butterflies coloured and stamped in same way as other side. I added another fab quote and some floral trim, which I love!!! coloured with inks.
To complete a butterfly and ideaology knob on the top.
