The Butterfly Keeper

Morning Peeps,

Another Friday and another weekend, yayyyyyyyy.  I don't know about you but I am certainly in need of it. Today over at Craftalicious Dianna has set the theme and wants to see lot's of "Thank You's".  I have used one of the goregous  Crafts and Me Hannah Lynn stamps, The Butterfly Keeper, which is available right HERE from Crafts and Me.  I love the broad lines on these stamps and the fact that they colour up so quickly.


I have coloured her using copic markers. The background was created using antique linen, broken china and victorian velvet distress inks and the blending tool.

I stamped an additional crystal ball and added glossy accents to give it that glossy shiny look and then popped it onto 3D pads for added dimension.

Materials Used:-

The Butterfly Keeper - Available from Crafts and Me
Medium - Copic Markers
Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Aged Mahogony, Broken China, Victorian Velvet
Papers by Daisy P
Glossy Accents
Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaves cut using Quickutz
Stickles Glue
Making Memories Distress Tool
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Flocked Brads & Organza Ribbon from stash

Paper Pretties - Brads or Eyelets
