Shabby Butterfly

I really should have been making a card for a Son In Law but felt more like making something more feminine! I had seen something on Pinterest (Did I say I was obsessed ?) about making doilies with corner punches so had a go with the only Martha Stewart corner punch I own, not perfect but worked pretty well ,the pin said if it wasn't perfect stick an embellishment over the bit that was wrong so that's what I did. Papers are G45 secret garden. The flowers are another obsession I have at the moment for stamping them on canvas that has been spray inked, stencilled and stamped , of course the ones I have already made never match what I am doing so I have to make more and more. Few challenges I think it fits:

House Of Cards     - Shabby and vintage

Addicted To Stamps - shabby/vintage

Fashionable Stamping - Sew'n'sew - real of faux stitching ( faux stitching and the buttons are stitched on)

Anythingchallenge- In the garden add some butterflies

Crafts Creations - Butterflies

Vintage Stamping - Wings and things

  4. Hello Joan
    I am so pleased that you have joined in the HOC challenge, Shabby/Vin theme. I was surprised to hear that the papers were G45, I would not have recognised them. However,I love what you have designed, the doily looks great, your flowers add the necessary dimension, but it is your piece of texture behind your butterfly that grabs my eye....I love it.
    Smiles:)
