Butterfly Art

On Saturday I am taking an all day workshop at Pickleberry Crafts, and there are a couple of places left if you would like to join us. It is an all day workshop and will be filled with lots of UTEE, and inks and stamping! If you have never used Utee and the meltpot before , or have and want to learn more, then come and play.
You will get to make one of these gorgeous butterflies, and here I added him to a tag I had distress inked, and added the sentiment from one of Hels' stamp designs. The letters are old wooden scrabble tiles (email me if you would like a set, I have  a couple in stock) , which I rubbed a little bit of peeled paint on, and dried, and then added Crackle Accents to ( thank you Linda for the inspiration..lol).


I rather like this tag, and it isn't often I say that! You can book on line or call the shop.
Hope you are keeping warm and making ART!

Gorgeous tag, Jennie. Love that butterfly. The workshop sounds fab but unfortunately too far for me.

I rather like it too - and the butterfly is stunning. It's a shame that I live so very very far away from where your course is being held or I would have been there like a shot
