But first I want to thank everyone who visited!!! And give extra thanks and hugs to everyone that left such sweet comments!! You each brought joy to my heart and a smile to my day!!! I'm so very glad you liked the projects!! I really did have a wonderful time making them!!
And second I'd like to share one more cute little project with you..
I thought a Butterfly Bouquet would be fabulous!!! I stamped the larger flourish butterfly 5 times, each with a different color of ink, onto natural cardstock and cut each one out. I took a piece of matching colored wire for each one, wrapped it around a skewer, took it off the skewer, and pulled both ends to again lengthen the wire but now it has a wave. I attached the wires to the backs of the butterflies with a little blob of heavy gel medium.
The bottle is from Tim's corked glass vials. I again used that very cool technique Wendy Vecchi shared for giving a faux crack to the bottle.. first brush on a thin coat of Ranger's Glue 'n Seal, let it dry, and then brush on a coat of rock candy Distress Crackle Paint. After the paint was dry and cracked I added ink to the bottle for color.
I stamped the part of the large butterfly circle quote that had the words 'time enough' onto natural cardstock using Archival Ink jet black, cut out the words and glued them to the bottle. The 4mm white silk ribbon was colored with Distress Ink and tied around the bottle.
To help the butterflies stand in the bottle (and also to give it a bit more weight) I put clear acrylic pieces you can find in the floral section of the craft store... I can't remember what they are called but they look like Dew Drops.. into the bottle.
And now... the winner is Nelda!!!!
