"Flying Things'

"Flying Things"
is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges
this fortnight!
We especially need to see that the stamping 
is the focal point on the project 
and that this must follow the format of the theme.

I've been in a butterfly kind of mood lately so I thought I would
keep it going for this challenge.

The background here is pure inky fun!
After a little distress ink is added to the card, splotching some distress stains, I've stamped a nice rich
flourish in matching colours.  Then I've added a layer with some script and butterfly stamping in burgundy.
I'm not sure about you, but I find splotching ink sooo much fun!

The main panel is a Stamper's Anonymous stamp on cream card with some
contrasting burgundy splotching.
The butterfly was stamped again, cut-out, coloured, glitzed and matted onto
burgundy cardstock.
To finish I've used a little twine and a heart fastened with some stapling.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.
