Well the challenge Hels has set over at Sunday Stamper this time is dream...and here is my butterfly dream inspired piece, i also want to add it to the lovely Brendas Tuesday treasures, where you can link up a treasure you have created..see here for details..
I started by using some arts parts, Tim butterfly stamps and a Tim die. The base was coloured with picket fence and tumbled glass dress stain and the spritzed with perfect pearls mist in turquoise. Then i added some broken china DI. When dry i embossed the Wendy leaves stamps in clear and Tim's small butterflies in broken china distress embossing powder.The dress forms, I cut two, from grungepaper...and were coloured in same way.
All the butterflies were stamped with manganese blue archival ink onto vellum, cut out and the centres had some chunky pearl glitter added..not too glittery as i don't really like glittery glitter!!? does that make sense? This glitter was added to some vellum wings too..love the chunky texture.
To complete i added some little bottles a Wendy sentiment and some flowers made from tatttered floral die.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
