Back to the butterflies

Good Monday morning. How was your weekend?
The weather has been amazing. I have been enjoying lunches and a
 a cuppa in my garden.
Billy loved it too. He sat on the back door step and basked in the warmth of the sun.
I noticed the iris are in flower, pushing up between my potted violas.
 We also had such fun celebrating my son's 30th on Sunday...more from that coming up later this week. It's of course time for my Monday Make for Visible Image and I am continuing to showcase their simply gorgeous new mixed media stamps which are taking the crafting world by storm. After sharing my very different Art Rebel piece last week today I am back to the butterflies.
I used
Wings of change
Live life now
and a sentiment from the brilliant new
The world needs art set.
 I made an alcohol ink background mixing and dripping lots of glorious purples and greens

I stamped the flourish of butterflies from Live life now

 I stamped several butterflies from Wings of change and fussy cut them out. I also stamped and embossed the Art is in my DNA sentiment from The world needs art set. I then made a frame for my "picture" and put everthing together.
Here is my finished work.
 with some close ups.

and one final photo. I think this sentiment really sums me up...I have an urge to be creative really is in my DNA and my's what gives me so much pleasure in my life. I also love sharing it here.
