Crafty Crafting Away - Butterfly Kit

In this post  I explained how I made up some kits so I could secretly craft on our family holiday. (Actually it didn't stay secret for long, but as it kept me happy, no-one seemed to mind). The second kit is here . This was the final kit, both to pack and to use, that's why I only made four items, but five from the other kits.  I can't remember where I saw the real kit that inspired me, but here's my kit:
includes Avery Elle Butterfly stamps, Tim Holtz stencils , Hero Arts inks

Here's what I made:

Using the Hero Arts red ink, I stamped a butterfly (coloured with Zig Clean Colour) and sentiments  from the Avery Elle set and doodled a 'trail' from the i to the butterfly.

I'd like to enter: 

The frame and the 'merci' were cut on the Silhouette and taken with me- I coloured the frame with gold ink and the sentiment with black marker. I made a background using a Tim Holtz stencil on kraft card, and spray ink. I stamped and embossed the buttefly, coloured it with the Hero inks and stamped the text  (unknown brand) over it. 
I'd like to enter:
I inked the tag with ink I'd put in another kit, and spray it with water. I stamped the text and smaller butterflies . I stamped and embossed the large butterfly and coloured wit Zig Clean Colour markers. The 'love' is from a pack of unopened stickers I'd put in one of the other kits. I was fed up to find that they had stuck to the packaging and many were unusable! 
I'd like to enter:

Finally, an ATC I made for the Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge 'doodle'. 
I stamped the large buttefly and just doodle on it. I also doodle a frame. The sentiment is by Heidi Swapp.

In case you're thinking all I did on holiday was stamp, I can assure you I had a fantastic time exploring Cornwall's beaches, gardens, harbour villages, restaurants and the Eden Project. Here's a small holiday snap.

Another fab kit! The weather in U.K. Is probably as reliable as the weather over the pond here, so you were right to bring some crafty stuff. I think you achieved much with little, I find that very inspiring. We don't always need plenty of fancy stuff and huge piles of materials to be creative and to create.
