Hello all you crafty Peeps, I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend, the weather is a bit of a mixed bunch but at least it's still fairly warm.
A while ago a lovely man called Ignacio invited me to join his design team, it's taken me a while but after he sent me his beautiful butterfly images I didn't need much persuading and I'm very proud to say I am now part of the team at Nicecrane Designs. He is a talented artist and graphic designer and his images and design sheets are in the main Vintage inspired offering beautifully detailed sheets from flowers to butterflies and Vintage fashion as well as many traditional well loved nursery characters.
I thought I would share one of my first makes with you using the beautiful Tortoiseshell Butterfly.....thumbnail link below.......which I printed out twice to decoupage. The background is Dylusions pure sunshine, squeezed orange postbox red plus a spritz of pearl Glimmer Mist. Onto this I stamped Stampendous P107 and heat embossed with detailed gold which I also added around the edges, then added a piece of recycled corrugated which I embossed with Frantage and also embossed some of that onto the thorax of the butterfly.
I will be adding this and some future work to my new Pinterest boards, it's still very much work in progress and I need to spend a bit of time getting to understand it all properly, but I am slowly finding some of my blogland friends there as well.
Whatever you have planned, I hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday Monday.
