butterfly hanging.........

Morning peeps hope you are not flooded in with all the rain we had again yesterday, the storm clouds look like they are gathering as I type. We seem to be skipping a season and heading straight into winter, the heating has had to go on in our house.....brrrrr.
I thought I'd share with you a card that I made using one of the lush new stamps from Crafty Individuals, they popped through my door a day before I went on holiday......torture as I couldn't play with them straight away, I coloured this one in whilst I was in Italy, now I'm not sure about birds so I turned mine into a Robin and then saw the words Spring so my bird was probably meant to be a Sparrow............mine is just having a hot flush thats all.
I used Victorian velvet and the new Peacock feathers distress inks and a corner stencil from CI to colour the background fabric, the lace I gathered up for the background of the image, the stick I coloured with Prisma pencils as was the image and I added a Crystal drop to the ends of the stick. The stick started life as a skewer for a burger, my family know what I'm like now for recycling things for my projects so I have quite a collection.I layered up the bird, butterflies and eggs for added dimension.

The shabby binding is from Live and love Crafts......totally addicted to this.....lol, the sweet little flowers with diamantes, the stamp and the stencil can all be found at Crafty Individuals.
