Things With Wings



Things with Wings is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight.  Lots of scope there - birds, bees, insects as well as my choice of butterfly.

I've had this silver box frame lying around for ages. so I gave it a couple of coats of gesso and then used the Tim Holtz Doily stencil on the top and sides.  When it was dry, I used my finger and rubbed Autumn Bronze Gilding Wax over the entire frame.

My butterfly and sentiment are from TH Perspective set of stamps, coloured with Distress Inks.  There's also a butterfly, stamped on vellum underneath, as the butterfly is only attached by the body.  The background is one of Astrid's freebie papers, which I've added some stencilling and background stamping to.  I've taken a photo before adding the glass and the 'space' between glass and frame was 'filled' with script tissue tape.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

This is really beautiful Avril. I love the soft colours. Great frame.
I only managed to join in last months boys theme on the last day but will try and join earlier this time as this is a lovely theme too :)
I've not seen the weather forecast so not sure if summer has reached you at last - we've had a bit of a northerly breeze on and off today along with the sunshine and clear blue skies.
Hope you had a nice day...
