Two Butterflies (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I love to revist old stamp sets, to mix them up with newer sets, and to use materials that I did not have the first time around. The Steampunk Butterfly stamp set featured on the recent Craft Channel TV shows is no exception; it is a really versatile stamp set, with some lovely stamps in the set.

I created a background using gelatos, and then stamped the cog fragment using Distress Ink. I used some pretty background papers from the Crafty Individuals range to create a bit of paper weaving, and also stamped and embossed two of the large butterflies onto the same papers, using silver embossing powder. I stamped a sentiment from the Awesome Diva clear stamp set onto the background. Finally, I used some co-ordinating card to mat and layer the background.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
