A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies (by Debbie)

I admire Artists who can create beautiful pieces art that can be
that can be hung around the home.
When I saw the butterflies on the Harebell and Briar Rose Butterfly
 stamps sets to and gathered all my scraps of marbled card then stamped them with black ink.
I cut out the butterflies and arranged them around a canvas.
My first thought was to have them flying in one direction but was unhappy with the layout. 
I decided to have them sitting in a tree so I lightly sketch a tree design
 onto a canvas that had a coloured green and blue resembling a landscape.
When happy with the shape I painted with black and arranged the butterflies. 
 Here is the canvas hanging proudly in our living room.
Here is a small note card coloured with Coloursoft Pencils and a lightly inked edge.
These stamps are so detailed and beautiful to colour.
Thank you for visiting

  5. What a pretty art piece. You are so creative.

  6. Beautiful. You've got to be enjoying your new piece of art on your wall.

  7. Lovely way of using the butterflies other than on a card. The colouring on the card is great.

  8. I love the canvas and what a great idea to use the butterflies as leaves on the tree. The harebells are so softly and delicately coloured too. x

  9. this is stunning - I'm so glad you showed the full size of it too! brilliant piece xx

  11. The canvas is great fun & in true Chocolate Baroque style with a nod to Essence of Nature - I too was struck by all the different sizes of the same butterfly across these two sets. Your canvas looks lovely in situ. Your soft colouring of the Harebells really captures the ethereal translucence of the flower heads & I particularly like the way you have edged the card panel with soft blue to bring out the colour of those flowers. The matting is exquisite against the white with the scalloped edges echoing the flower heads & the butterfly's wings.
