Mixed Media Butterfly Vignette


We are sharing our favorite IndigoBlu stamps in our projects this month on the IndigoBlu blog.  By far, Flutterby is my favorite!  I altered a wooden vignette box, using a variety of IndigoBlu paints.  I embossed Vintage Flourish in copper along the perimeter of the box.  I adhered my stamped butterfly over a bed of shredded book page for texture.  I painted the wooden cutout with Miss Moneypennny Copper paint.  This small project will be a perfect inspirational display for my office.  Thanks for visiting today!

Gorgeous, Autumn!! I adore your colors and textures, and of course, that stamp!! Hope 2017 is treating you well thus far.... I am now in Nicaragua where everything is quite different than my usual routine, so trying to stay in the moment and enjoy :-) Not my strong point, but practice is always good, lol! Thanks for a bright spot today - xxx Lynn

I'm gong back in time to check you out... three butterflies in a row! And here is that fab realistic guy! Now, I'm not a big butterfly-crafting person, but it's because I've never seen THIS one! Hmmm. Maybe I need it.
I love this MM piece... fun, bold, texture-laden, both visual and physical. I'm a fan.
