Challenge #2 for April

Wow, wow, wow! What beautiful entries we've had for last month's challenge and so many too, we're blown away with the response so a huge THANK YOU for your support!! Winners will be announced shortly but first we have to deal with a few housekeeping bits and then, of course, launch this month's challenge...

We spent a lot of time dealing with emails and queries this past month and several things have become apparent so we're changing the rules. From today onwards you can enter as many times as you like and what you like. Other rules apply so check them out HERE please.

So, without further ado, the challenge for this month is 'BUTTERFLIES'. Here are the initial makes from our talented Design Team which we hope will give you some inspiration...

"This butterfly box was originally a vintage thimble display box purchased from an antique stall in Bridport. It has been given the shabby look with layers of paint, crackle paint and walnut stain distress ink. Filled with lots of little goodies and a multitude of butterflies."



"This miniature started out as a 2"x3" frame. Add a Tim pediment, paint and crackle and it becomes the base for my tiny 'Butterfly garden'. The flowers and butterflies are distressed very lightly to give a gentle shabby chic feel without it being too heavy."


 "A combination of Tim Holtz dies, Ideaology, PaperArtsy paints and stamps were used to make this Spring birdcage. The birdcage was cut from Grungepaper and inked with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and clear embossing powder."



 "For this piece I  went for my new found favourite toy the wonderful distress paints, lots of great Tim Holtz stamps and one of my favourite colour combinations of blues and browns. I added lots of inky layers and plenty of stamping to create my canvas on its easel."
