Butterfly framed gift (by Debbie)

Hello. Something a little different from me today. I'm sure I'm not alone when you see something and think 'I'll use that one day.' I do that a lot. I bought this frame from IKEA quite a while ago and my hubby tried to use it for a photo he'd taken so I hid it with my crafty stash. When I received my Tim Holtz tissue I immediately knew it would look fantastic in the frame.
The frame comes with a mount which I covered with matte multi medium and carefully laid the tissue on to it. When dried, I trimmed out the centre then wrapped around the edges and rubbed with Antique Linen ink. A piece of white card that has been inked around the edges was placed into the aperture. I stamped many butterflies from different sets of Chocolate Baroque sets and placed them randomly on the card. It will be difficult to part with this so I may need to buy more frames to repeat for Christmas gifts. Thanks for stopping by today. Debbie


  1. This is lovely Debbie, great vintage feel and great mix of CB butterflies. Elaine x

  2. Lovely with the neutral colours & the combining of the tissue wrap with an assortment of CB butterflies - I'm not surprised you're going to keep this one for yourself.
