B is for Butterfly


Here is another example of me straying from my original ideas! My idea was to make a dead-creature-free version of a Victorian butterfly collector's box. But somehow I ended up adding some really bright non-Victorian colours!

I used one stamp - a very old one by Anita's and used it in several different ways - on dominoes, on a wafer of mica (with added Pearl Ex) , onto a Tim Holtz 'fragment', onto shrink plastic and directly onto the backing paper. I cut the word on the Silhouette Cameo and coloured it with Moonglow Starburst Stain. The frame is a Tando Creative mini printer tray that I painted with pink acrylic paint.

I like that you've used different styles and techniques using the same set of butterflies, to me it's always inspirational to see how I can reuse my stamps in different ways. This is a beautiful project, Marina, and I believe you've puts lots of time and heart into this one!
