Saturday Slot

For me one of the very best things about blogland friends is the way information can be passed on so easily. So while I was browsing Kathy's blog - Purple Princess Diaries - I discovered a new challenge blog - Happy Little Stampers. Love how these things just snowball.

One of their February challenges is this lovely CAS sketch:
http://happylittlestampers.blogspot.com.au/2015/02/hls-february-sketch-challenge.html

And here is what I came up with:


I stamped the background before die cutting it into a stitched circle. The butterflies were punched and edged with ink. Not sure why the swirls look purple, they really are chocolate brown in real life! 


Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko Studio, Big & Bold Snow & A Gift For You; SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU, early espressp, crumb cake
Die: Lawn Fawn, stitched party banners
Punches: Martha Stewart, 3 in 1 butterfly & classic butterfly medium
Embellishments: Papermania adhesive pearls

Thanks for spending some time looking at my blog today. And keep crafting!
