Collector Of Dreams

Have you seen the monthly challenges over at A Little Bit Crafty? Paula is really hoping all kinds of crafts will take part, including the messy painty type!!!
This months theme is all about using die cuts, and I've made a painty panel (as usual!) with some die cuts on there for a bit more texture!
Quite pastel for me really, this colour scheme, but nice and summery too!
I smeared the paint over the base card, and stamped details too...
I used Memory Box dies, and used them in a very simple manner! Cut from white card, then stuck down! The butterfly die cut is the detailed 'filigree' part. Once I had cut it out, I used the waste as a template to draw the solid butterfly shape, then painted it to match the background...
To finish off, I did a little stitching around the panel..
The black of the stitching is echoed in the black of the rub on words, so it all ties together nicely!
Have a great week everyone, and why not get the die cuts out and enter the challenge? loads of prizes!

  1. Gorgeous! The colours are so soft and pretty and the butterfly is fabulous! xx

  2. Really loving the colour combo,

  3. Oh Trish, this is delightful... The soft colour palette to the delicate butterfly die cut & the contrast between these (love the white stem of leaves) & just the right amount of black.
    DE -LIGHT - FUL!!! :))

  4. PS, yes I did see challenge but didn't think it was for mixed media things... Thanks for helping (AGAIN) to help widen my vision! :)

  5. So delicately pretty! Will check out the challenge for sure...
