Guest Designer at Butterfly Challenge

Hi Folks
Today I am joining the Butterfly Challenge as a guest designer.  I was delighted to be asked as I love using butterflies on my projects.  Thank you to the Butterfly Challenge for letting me join you this week and I hope you like my inspiration project.


I used an indigo blu stamp set that I received free in a crafty magazine.  I stamped the images in versamark and then embossed with white WOW embossing powder.  I was then able to create a coloured background using distress inks.  The sentiment and butterfly were embossed with personal impressions black super sparkle embossing powder.  I added some punched flowers to the corners, some punched mini butterflies (love this punch) and a bow and pearl embellishment.

The theme for the challenge is Tic Tac Toe and here is the grid that you are required to follow.  You can choose any line you like as long as it dissects the central square.


I managed to use a couple of the lines:  wet embossing, butterflies, flowers and punches, butterflies, gems.

Thanks for popping by and would love to see you enter the challenge.  Why not pop over to the Butterfly Challenge to find out more.
