Butterfly Post

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to new followers DL.ART and fun stamping.  So glad you could join my happy little band.  Hugz all round.  

Over at A Blog Named Hero they want us to use small stamps to make a background.  What a fun idea.  So I had a think and came up with this

I used Sizzix/Hero Arts Postage Stamp set and Mustard Seed distress ink.  I cut a panel using the large die from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and stamped the butterfly and grid.  Then I used the small butterfly stamp to stamp the background.  I cut a frame using the die in the Postage set and added it around the butterfly and grid.  I mounted the panel on a yellow base card and used the straight die in the bundle of stitched shapes to add the stitch detail top and bottom.  I liked this so much I did something I rarely do.....

I made it again using Worn Lipstick

Salty Ocean

Mowed Lawn

Frayed Burlap

Hey, 5 for the price of 1.   And they were quick makes!!  Another unusual thing for me.
