Birthday butterfly's

I loved this sentiment from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi's A form of art Stamp set. It seemed to suit one of our friends well.. She's known for bay watch running and forward rolls at parties and can be wonderfully sassy.

I cut a tag from K&co patterned paper and gave it is light layer of aqua acrylic paint to stencil some spots then bumped using paper artsy moonlight. I stamped some calligraphy in vintage photo over the top. The butterfly's were cut from grunge word and distress inked and rock candy stickler.the pen nib, key and butterfly are from the steam punk range and inspire token from Tim Holtz. All finished off with an off cut of sari silk.

I hope she likes it!
