Pretty Butterfly

Hi all hope to find you well today.

Well would you believe it, it's Tuesday 
again I'm sure I've missed a couple of days 
this last week, it's come round so quick.

So onto this weeks Challenge over at 
It's anything goes week and this 
week the optional extra is to use
shrink plastic.
As ever we are sponsored by the 
wonderful Lili of the Valley.

I've been having a play with this card,
Out came my distress inks and watercolour card.
Also i had to remember where my shrink plastic was,
not played with it for years and it had been tidied 
away so it took me half an hour to find it.
But ooh what fun, i had forgotten how
much fun shrink plastic is.
The stamps i have used are from the 
range that Sheena does for
paint fusion.
Stamped the flower on the shrink and 
coloured lightly to make a little charm.
The butterfly is stamped onto watercolour card
 and painted with distress inks
 Weathered wood and Spun sugar.
The backing paper is a perfect match,
i was lucky as i painted my image again first
then tried to match the papers.
It's from DCWV old world stack.
I love this stack there are lots of fabulous
distressed papers.
Stamped swirls round the main image and embossed 
them with silver embossing powder, 
also did the same with the sentiment.
Ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl.

Now I've rediscovered shrink plastic
I'm definitely going to use it more.

Blanket update
 I've put together 5 rows
at the moment and it's looking good only
another 19 rows to go.

Thanks for looking today 
hope to see you over at Papertake.
Take care
