 I am so hot.... Yikes! my uniform at work is like wearing a carpet in this would be lovely to wear a summer dress...., as soon as I get home I have a cool shower...Bliss.... Anyway enough of my melting episodes... on to my wee fun make... I had a fabulous time getting inky with this one... Firstly I covered the canvas in gesso & added some Tim Holtz washi tape... and embossed the letters folder onto white card and added it around the canvas... I used the clock mask to one corner with molding paste... then painted it over with burnt viridian acrylic paint then added white acrylic paint on top, them removed some layers with baby wipes....I hope you like the background... I was very hard to capture it on the pics...The Butterfly is cut from the Sizzix butterfly album.. this butterfly is the smaller one of the two..I used corrugated card for this one... I added a little crochet circle, the sentiment & image are from Oxford Impressions stamp plate (season of giving) the little frame & metal butterfly are from my stash..Finished off with a thick coat of crackle paint...   Have a great week all....
