Blue butterfly


Hi, I haven't used this butterfly stamp for ages. I have a few that I haven't used at all!

I should stamp them all onto some A4 paper and put them in a folder so I can
see what I have and use more of them more often.
Sounds like a plan for the holidays.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More
where the theme is to make your mark with paints, markers or pencils.

I stamped and fussy cut the butterfly then coloured it with Prismacolor pencils.

At Time Out Challenges the theme is any type of embossing with an optional twist of adding some sparkle.
I used clear embossing powder when I stamped the butterfly and embossed the background. I added some bling for sparkle.

Edited to add: I'm also going to link up to a new challenge for me, Uniko Studio Challenge
where the theme is anything goes, or to use the sketch. Thanks for the suggestion Sandie!


Supplies:
Memory Box Wonderland butterfly stamp; Cuttlebug oriental weave embossing folder; prismacolor pencils; sentiment sticker and bling.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
