Butterfly Fairy Framed Art

Hi everyone,

I colored Karen Middleton's Butterfly Fairy from Plate #138 last weekend and decided to use some of my many self made background papers. I also decided to use a wooden frame and add a little Distress Stain, Glimmer Mist and butterflies.

This project actually came together quite nicely. Since I always have so much fun experimenting when I use mists, inks or certain techniques, I always have lots of 'scraps' which I keep. And this time around, it was a good thing :-).

I also got out my butterfly stencil and spritzed some Perfect Pearl Mist:

She is colored with Copics. Used Distress Ink to add some definition to the edges unfortunately I also got some stray ink smudges from my inky fingers onto the colored image.

But I'm just going to pretend it's part of the glitter :-). Make sure to head over to the Sweet Pea Stamps store and check out the sales....!
