Butterflies at Rainbow Lady's Challenge

Hi there, we've got a fab new Butterflies challenge starting today over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog  and our sponsor this week is none other that my lovely teamie Caroline, from CaroLine's  Creative Stamps

I've used Caroline's beautiful digi butterflies on my little wallhanging. I crackled the background with copper and black acyric paint and a layer of watered down PVA glue and added copper EP around the edge. I brayered the little scene using Big& Juicy spice inkpad and some of Carolines beautiful rubber stamps, you get so many sillhouettes in this set its hard to choose lol. 

I matted the scene on a lacy die cut circle, added some ribbon and popped the butterflies in position. To finish off I added some black enamel accents to the butterflies bodies.

I'm entering this little project in the following challenges
Craft a Scene: Moonlight
Crafts and Me: Elegant fairies
Craft your passion: Monochromatic
Creative Craft Challenge: anything but a card
Ribbon Carousel: Anything goes
Whimsy Inspiration: No patterned paper

Thanks for calling by today, hop on over to the challenge blog to see more of Caroline's beautiful images and of course the fabby projects from my talented teamies
