I made this piece for Craft Stamper magazine competition. It was for the Stamper of the Year 2012, Round Five which was sponspored by IndigoBlu, so you had to use as least one IndigoBlu stamp.
This was published in the January issue of Craft Stamper as I was one of the Shortlisted entrants!
It started life as an old wooden frame which I painted a pale yellow and I have used Anenome Corner and Wild Meadow IndigoBlu stamps along with Mega Flake. I have used Distress Inks to colour the background then overstamped in a darker ink. The butterflies are stamped on acetate with StazOn and the guilding flakes are applied to the back.
These pictures show some of the detail in the butterflies and flowers a bit clearer and the dimension created on the outside of the frame.
It would have been great to win, but this was the first time I have entered this competition, so it really was exciting to be picked for the shortlist. Craft Stamper also sent the project back, so now it is hanging on my craft room wall.
Happy Crafting xx
