Chip Chip Hooray!

Some months ago I bought a tin of Maya Road chip shapes and haven't used any of these square ones yet. 
I coloured this with rusty hinge and stamped the checkerboard backround (all stamps are Wendy V) - new from Saturday! - and overstamped that with the leaf border. I stamped and inked two butterflies (crushed olive - that's a yummy colour too, everyone who had already got it, told me so, and they were right... and used the same on the flower, which is overstamped in forest moss with another Wendy background.  It was getting late so I didn't have time to stick beads to the butterflies for the body, but used a copper gel pen instead, added some idea-ology foliage and an adage ticket, and stamped "art" on a scrap of grungepaper which i coloured rusty hinge to match.

Got to go to bed now as I get up at 5.30, but the best thing about having 3 days off at the start of the week means that tomorrow is Friday already - yippee!!!
