Challenge Time!!!


This month at Noor! Design UK we are challenging you to use:


I've had this gorgeous "double lace butterfly" from the shop for some time and I never thought about using it for the main piece until now.  See if you hang on to something for long enough, eventually you'll find a use for it.  Now you're thinking "ok she's a hoarder" but only when it comes to anything crafty.  Yes, I'm a crafting hoarder.  LOL!!  I suspect I'm not alone here.  😀

I have to tell you that this idea was NOT my own.  I borrowed it from Susannes Halseth and when I saw her card I immediately thought "Ooooo I HAVE TO DO THAT!".  It's a great way to show off Maja Design's "Vintage Romance" papers.  I used Scrapiniec's "Lavender Mist" stems to layer and some gorgeous WO flowers for those last touches.  

Again more flowers and Lavender Mist stems with a glass bead and strawberry in each bouquet.  I also added some cheesecloth underneath and touched a few area's with some Gesso.  Love that shabby look!!  

This butterfly was kind of hilarious.  I had my husband hold the top layer of wings up and then I sprayed with self-adhesive glue and covered it with "Diamond Dust" glitter.  We did it again with the top layer but that self-adhesive glue is sticky!!!  It took us awhile it get it off our fingers but he was a great sport about it.  In fact, adding the glitter was his idea!!!  LOL!  It's sooooo glittery in real life!  

Thanks for stopping by to check out my shabby Maja butterfly card!!

Enjoy your weekend when it gets to you and I hope you find some crafty time!

The products used can be ordered in the Noor! Design U.K. webshop:
