Allsorts Challenge #628 - Butterflies & Bugs

 Hi Crafters,

It's time to bring you my DT project for the new challenge at Allsorts.

We hope you will join in with us and create your Butterfly and Bugs projects.

I have used a Woodware Stamp and created two different cards. Both were heat embossed in white, I used Distress Oxides on one and stamped and paper pieced the other using some of my pixie powder backgrounds from other projects.

I even managed to use one of my Martha Stewart punches along the edge, these haven't been used for such a long time :o/

I dry embossed the background with a Tattered Lace Alphabet Folder and used a Tonic Sentiment stamp which was heat embossed on to vellum.

Here they are together.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends - #159 ATG

SSS Monday Challenge - Mixed Media

Creative Knockouts - #405 ATG

My time To Craft - #459 Things in the Sky

613 Avenue Create - #6 ATG/Paper Piecing

We have two lovely prizes this week for some lucky winners from Craft Stash.

A Woodware Stamp and Tattered Lace Die

If you need some inspiration before you join in the challenge take a look at the rest of the Design team makes on the blog here.

Thank you for your comments on my last post, they are appreciated very much.
I'll see you again soon,
