Butterflies - glass domed frame


Good evening friends.




This is a 7cm glass domed frame that I got from a charity shop. I have made it to go with the butterfly frame I made a few weeks ago using the same TH butterfly paper and stamps and with the addition of one of my real, vintage Charlotte dolls. (Sorry about the quality of the picture, but it was difficult to photograph and not get the glare of the glass). The butterflies have been painted with vintage colour mica paints.

Thanks for stopping by.
