Butterfly Mania


The TH butterflies were stamped onto a background of marbled distressed stains, the next layer was stamped in vintage photo distress stain with the script from the same stamp plate and tinted with milled lavender distress ink and mounted onto a piece of plain black card. The background is a piece of corrugated painted in squid ink, egg plant, little black dress and pansy fresco paints.

PanPastelUk have a theme of summer fun this week and A Vintage Journey are asking for distress stains to be used.

Terrific idea to use black for the background Sam it makes the black butterflies show up so well.
