Things With Wings

I had a much needed boost today when I saw a card I entered into a Steampunk Challenge at 
That Craft Place was chosen to be in the Top 3, many thanks. Their current challenge is Things With Wings, a very wide choice but having recently purchased some Megaflakes from Indigo Blue, I've been playing with an old favourite stamp from Elusive Images, which has a butterfly as the focal point. 
I coloured white card with several DI, stamped the image with Black ink. I sprinkled some gold Frantage and heated from below to melt and set. I re-stamped the butterfly using Flitterglue and and sprinkled Lancashire Rose Megaflakes over the butterfly area. The butterfly was attached to the main card with a little silicone glue on the thorax. Matted onto gold mirri. Tied with two pieces of gold ribbon. 


  1. Gorgeous, love the subtle coloured background and the flakes look fab. Hugz, Jan xx
