After a morning out in Durham with DH, I managed a couple of hours crafting yesterday, I'd wanted to have a try at using the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamps in a vintage style. So after masking the stamped flower, I used one of the Distressed Damask stamps, and heat embossed with clear EP, next came the Papillion script, inked with Faded Jeans and 2nd generation stamping. The background was coloured with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans DIs. My little butterfly was stamped with Faded jeans and layered up on the same image stamped on vellum. The flower was then water coloured with Spun sugar and Peeled paint for the leaves. It's almost 'flat' apart from the pearl, so it's one to keep for the post!
I am entering this at:

I've been to a local Craft show this morning, I didn't need anything, just a couple of basics, but it was nice to meet up with a couple of crafty friends for coffee and a chat, but now, a late start to tidy up the mess I made yesterday so I can start again!
