On the Wings of a Butterfly - Sunday Stampers

Good Evening Crafters

Well, I don't know about you but I thought that Catherine Middleton looked absolutely stunning on her and William's Wedding Day yesterday and I wish them both all the best for the future. 

Down to business.  Here is my little creation for Hel's Sunday Stampers Challenge!  I really must get in the habit of making these a little earlier in the week, so that I am not trying to finish them in a rush on Saturday afternoon!  Woops!  I solemnly promise Hels to undertake them a little earlier.  Not that I expect you will be looking at your blog much as you have jetted off to the US and left us to go to a certain place.  I hope you have having a FAB time!!
As you can see I have had another go at the old alcohol inks by inking a microscope slide with alcohol inks (Sail boat blue, Plum and Mountain rose) then stamping a Butterfly image with one of my Cavallini stamps using Perfect Medium to apply clear embossing powder, heating the powder up (carefully!) then wiping the surface with Blending solution.  I then popped it into a Memory Frame with another clear slide in the back, adhered a corner with Glossy accents, attached two small charms and here we have my little "Wings" piece.  (I tried really hard to find a way of putting a picture of Paul McCartney and his band Wings on a memory glass but to no avail!  Darn it!!)

I just love the way that the colours have combined and made a gorgeous shade of purple - a good shade for butterflies me thinks.

This will not be the last time you see this little piece, as I will be using it to make my piece for Grungy Monday which I will post tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend, and don't forget to leave me a comment so that I know you have been.

Au Revoir!
