This is a sort of experiment picture that I am entering in the Just For Fun Challenge. This weeks challenge theme has been chosen by the lovely Von who never likes to make things easy! lol. Von’s theme is “words”.

Here is my picture
As I said above this was a bit of an experiment and a bit of a mess about to see what turned out.
This is the picture before I added the blue and took off some of the colour on the butterflies.
If I am completely honest I am not keen on the two small butterflies facing to the side and my stamping is rubbish. This is quite a large butterfly stamp and I use a piece of twin walled, clear plastic roofing sheet for a stamp block. Normally I would added some foam behind the stamp to get a better impression but I have lost my foam somewhere in the cavern which is my craft room. I am not being down on myself I am just keeping it real. I did touch up some lines and the butterfly bodies with some black paint.
Right enough of my woffle. I used a 30cm x 30cm piece of MDF. Coated it with acrylic paint, stamped, masked and stamped some more. I coloured the butterflies in Marvy Brush Markers because I think they are great! lol. I then took the some of the colour off with a small paint brush, water and tissue. The blue ink was put on and then dragged off with some kitchen roll. The photo has to be enlarged to read the words. I used Aritas spray acrylic varnish to fix the ink.
If you have read down as far as this, Thank you! and I send you lots of hugs and kind thoughts! lol!
Stamps used: Chocolate Baroque.
Best Wishes Florence.
PS. I have just checked the photos and in the top left hand corner there is a fly covering the word Whisper!!!!
