Sir Stampalot Challenge - Butterflies and Blossoms

The Sir Stampalot May Challenge is a cracker - the theme is Butterflies and Blossoms - and just look at all these goodies on offer for a lucky winner!








I knew I couldn't miss out on the chance to win this so this afternoon - FA Cup Final or not (I was still watching!) - I made my entry:

I have used a Maya Road hangy chip piece in which I punched a second hole so I could hang it - and made some grmgepaper roses and butterflies.  I used my new middle sized Wendy Vecchi rose for the first time and made two small ones, the inks are rusty hinge and crushed olive, which I also used the for chip piece.
I took a small tag to stamp the sentiment on and edged it with rusty hinge ink. some bling for the butterfly bodies and some WendyVecchi leaves finished it off, two swivel clasps to make the hanger.

Here are some other views (I forgot to take any "during" shots until quite late on)


I am quite happy with this piece, hope you like it too. Now I'm off to clean up my inky gluey fingers and make my dinner.
