Hi! Spring is drawing closer in our part of the world... although some chilly winds remind us that it's not quite here!
Archiscraps challenge for this month was to add butterflies to our creations.
For this challenge I have done a large tag, featuring butterflies and an inspirational message. This has been written in the cut out left-over from one of the butterflies used. These were die cut and put through an embossing folder.

The papers they were made from were hand done experiments with stencilling and sprays.The bottom butterfly has metallic blues, greens and golds on it, but these are not showing up clearly. To give the effect from the inspirational photo from archiscraps, one of the butterflies was cut from acetate packaging material and coloured using alcohol inks.
I also added some chipboard butterflies and wooden butterfly buttons.

Pop on over to archiscraps and check out what the team has created.
Catch you again soon.
Cheers, Di
