I was inspired to try this by the article in Craft Stamper this month by Sue Roddis. My friend had the stamps which she kindly brought round for us to play with and we got messy and had a lot of fun with this little idea. I have made a few changes but thats what its all about.

I used reinkers dropped onto paper and swished about for my background paper, then discovered that it wouldn't dry so added clear embossing powder and heated it and I loved th texture and effect this happy accident cased. I plaited coloured wire for the legs and added beads and a Tim Holtz clock hand to the clock face. The little papier mache boxes are painted with paint dabbers and then covered with glossy accents for a little shine xx

Butterflies and Pansy's

A few more of the butterfly cards and just to show that it can work for a man I made this one. I like the copper foil card , it has a leaf design on and fits the card well. I do have more greeting stamps but I just like this one at the moment as it suits a lot of occasions.
This Pansy stamp is a multi part one which I got the other week and haven't had time to use yet. I used some paper I made a while ago with Cosmic shimmer sprays and it worked very well. I think the next ones I shall emboss with powder as the design will pop a little more.
