DT call for Creative Expressions

Creative Expression are having a DT call until Friday 31st August so thought I'd give it a shot .
The  brief is to make anything you like but must include texture and stamping so I looked to some of my favourite challenges for inspiration The Craft Barn would like you to use one of the colouring techniques from the blog and I choose Neils which was to use distress markers, the stamp I choose from Lost Coast Designs lent it's self perfectly.
Sir Stampalot's theme is take flight well I have the bird so now I have used the butterfly embossing folder from Craft Concepts for my texture, a touch of distress inks to make the butterflies pop and some black soot around the edge, the background I made a while ago with gesso and watercolour crayons. Other stamps used are Tim Holtz and Woodware
Wish me luck and thanks for taking the time to pop by :)

Good morning again Von,

Still smiling at this end whilst keeping my eye on the robotic microphone.

Your piece of artwork has a beautiful fusion of colours and with that kaleidoscope of butterflies has a really ethereal feel to it.

Thank you so much joining us at Stampalot challenges month and good luck with the DT call.
