All a Flutter

I was taking some photos today and remembered to take one of a box frame I made a few weeks back. Inspired by the sample using All a Flutter in the Mini Catalogue and also a beautiful project that Ilina Crouse made I knew exactly what I was going to do, especially as I've had the box frame sitting around for simply ages. The frame itself was a plain light wood colour and to make it more in keeping with what was going on the inside I played around with some of the re-inkers. Basically I put some Close to Cocoa in a dish and added water and simply painted it onto the frame. It dries real quick and although not quite the colour I was looking for, it still looks good.The butterflies were stamped onto Confetti White and coloured with an aqua painter. The En Francais stamp was also stamped onto Confetti White although the bottom layer was Very Vanilla. This was stamped with the words from Vintage Vogue using Soft Suede. The layer under that was Kraft and wheeled with Very Vintage in Versamark. I also used a sponge to distress the edges using Soft Suede.
Right, that's it from me. Got a ton of stuff to do.
Catch ya soon!
