Hello lovelies and a very happy Friday!
Not only does Friday mean it's nearly the week-end it also means that today is my VISIBLE IMAGE Design Team post.
I wanted to make something for my craft room so I decided to make a
'Butterfly Desk Picture'.
I absolutely love butterflies and they have a very special meaning to me too, so to make a picture was just perfect!
I have used the following stamps to create my project...
You can buy all of these stamps at the VISIBLE IMAGE WEBSITE or to be taken directly to the stamps click on the stamp name above.

Here is my 'Butterfly Picture'...
I used white card to create the picture base and made an arm that I attached at the back to create the easel to make it stand up.
I stamped 3 large butterflies, the smaller butterfly once and the butterfly sentiment once using Memento Ink Tuxedo Black. I coloured them using Letraset Promarker's in shades:
Dusky Rose ~ Antique Pink ~ Carmine ~ Magenta ~ Black (used for edging the sentiment).
I used a quickie glue pen on the body part of the 3 large butterflies and added black flocking powder and black glitter.
I attached black and pink flocked paper to the picture base. I created an acetate frame using a box lid I had kept. The small butterfly has been attached to a pink card base and glued to the frame. I used a wide length of black sparkle ribbon to add some texture and sparkle, then glued the small butterfly frame to this. Finally I added black adhesive stones and the sentiment to finish.
I now have this sat on my desk in my craft room!
