Butterflies or Bugs

The Sparkly Fairy has been very busy this week! I have a craft fair next weekend so as well as making DT projects I am busy making cards to sell.

Last night I decided to actually make something for me to enter into the Fashionable Stamping Challenge which is butterflies or bugs.

I used a favourite nature collage stamp of mine and coloured it with mica paints. Then on a separate card I created three layers of WOW Embossing Powders Silver Ultra High and stamped into it with the same stamp to get an impression of the dragonfly. I then cut it out and mounted it in place on the original stamped picture. For the card background I covered it with book pages and dry brushed it with white acrylic paint.

Hi
Lovely to see you create something for yourself (and also for FSC!)
Great idea to stamp into the collage to highlight the dragonfly.
A lovely collage with lots of detail.
Thank you for sharing with us at FSC.
