wow, didn't July go quickly?! I have chosen a summery theme this month as I have been noticing that there don't seem to be as many butterflies this year, so I thought I would do some of my own.
Used a lot of tissue paper and paint to get some lovely texture on the cover of this altered slide mailer and used a brand new stamp I got from Viv to make the butterfly on the front - I doubled it up, stamping on to vellum to make the top set of wings.
Inside I used half of some pretty little butterfly stickers I have - thought they sort of looked like one of those old fashioned display cabinets stuck in the niches of the mailer. They are a little shiny, I did wonder if it would be better to have made my own butterflies but hey ho it's done now. I just love the sumptious reds and oranges, which incidentally are the colour theme for the current UK Art Raffle so I think I may make something similar for that.
The giveaway will stay open until 8.00 pm on Sunday 29th August and all you have to do to be included in the draw is leave a comment on this post before then. Feel free to link from your blogs, international players welcome. Thanks for stopping by!!
