Things with Wings at Try it on Tuesday

Time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight we would like to see 'Things With Wings'
I decided to alter a wooden butterfly that I bought a while ago, I actually got 3 different sizes and this is the medium one.  I gave it a coat of gesso and then used a paper napkin, then dry brushed with  Snowflake Fresco paint.  I did a little random stamping with an Inkylicious script stamp and Frayed Burlap DI.  My butterflies are from Nicecrane - Colourful Spring Butterflies 3, and were printed onto vellum before being fussy cut.
As usual, all the details along with some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team can be found here.

I am entering this at:
  Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes
  Rhedd's Creative Spirit - Anything Goes
  Tando Creative - Come Fly with Me
  Craft my Life Challenge - Anything Goes but no cards

That's it for now, apart from to say 'hello' to my new followers, it's great that you want to follow me on my crafting journey, and I hope you will pop in often.  Enjoy your week.

What a beautiful decorative piece! Paper napkins, I've got a drawer full of pretty ones, had almost forgotten about them. I used them to decoupage boxes and empty jars before I started stamping and cardmaking. Hmmmm, maybe I should dig into that drawer and put them to use... Thanks for the reminder and inspiration!
