A tag for Paris

Hi everyone it's time for my 2nd design team make for Country View Challenges.  For my first make I made this set of Paris inspired Artist trading coins and shared some photos from my last trip to Paris 10 years ago.

 If you missed it you can see it here
This time I decided to make use of some of the masterboard I had left over from those ATCs.
I stamped the tag with some text and then added strips of the leftover masterboard.

I added a heart, some tiny text stickers and a stamp of the Eiffel Tower to finish it off.
Here it is;
with a couple of close ups

and one final shot;

I hope I may have inspired you to join in with our May "We'll always have Paris" challenge. You can use any stamps/products, the choice is yours.

A butterfly rainbow for Visible Image

Hello I am super excited today as not only is it my fortnightly design team blogging post today for Visible Image but I can also reveal my first make with one of their 3 brand new A5 stamp sets!

For my first sample I used the gorgeous Butterfly Frenzy set.

which can be pre ordered here. Worldwide release date is 21st May.
To showcase it I made a canvas and as I could not decide which colours to use, I went for them all....a rainbow of butterflies!  

This is what I got up to; I took my distress stain sprays and sprayed across an A4 sheet of watercolour paper, adding water and allowing plenty of drippage. 

I then stamped around the edges with the "collage" element stamps which are really gorgeous in this set. There is a butterfly flourish (seen in the final photos) and these lovely circles.

I stamped the large butterfly, coloured it with zig markers and cut it out minus the antenna.
I stamped out 9 small butterflies and cut them out in the same way. I coloured them in a shades of 1 or 2 colours.

I also stamped the sentiments and matted then on black card, adding my signature glossy accents to the circles/bubbles. Finally I adhered it to mount board. It is A4 size and destined for my little granddaughter who adores all things butterflies and spotted this! 

Here it is;

with some close ups

and one final shot;
This set will be going onto my all time favourite stamps set list (Yes I know this list constantly grows  but this really is a real stunner of a set).

I would like to enter my butterfly canvas into the following challenges;
