Imagination Crafts Challenge #3 Butterflies

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well September has arrived, where is this year going?  I think the older I get the quicker the months are disappearing.

Today is the start of our new challenge over on the Imagination Crafts challenge blog, our 3rd challenge is all about butterflies, as you all know I love my butterflies, and Imagination Crafts have some stunning butterfly stencils, I think I have all of them now :)

I have decorated a brown paper gift bag and Tag using Sparkle Medium Dark Amber and the Butterfly Flourish.


Recipe

1. I stenciled the butterfly stencil onto the shiny decorative card using Sparkle Medium, once this was dry I outlined the square with a gold pen.
2. I stenciled butterflies at the top of the bag using Distress Ink Vintage Photo
3. I punched out 3 butterflies using old gold pearlescent card and added them to the topper after I had layered the topper onto the gift bag. I then added brown pearl gems to the butterfly centres.
4. I stenciled part of the stencil onto the Kraft tag once dry added a punched butterfly and brown pearl gems.



Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

Lovely bag, Linda. In my opinion, you can never have enough butterflies. Thank you for your encouraging comments on my cards this week. They were all fun to do as they were all playing to learn new techniques. xx Maggie

PS I meant to say, it is not a topper really on that final card. It is all done with masking on the Gelli plate to create the aperture into which to stamp. It looks like matting and layering because of the use of the Sharpie and micron pens. xx Maggie
