Butterfly collage for Crafty Individuals

I am really back in collage mode at the moment,  think it's something to do with the fact I am having to work on the dining room table and it's easier to have bits of paper and some inks and stamps round me whilst the rest of my supplies are stashed away in boxes. 

I loved putting this one together for Jean at Crafty Individuals. This is such a sweet stamp image with the butterfly and ticket and as you can see I added lots of fairly plain papers and bits to frame it.

The stamp was coloured with watercolour pencils and wet brush. 

The heart was cut from a coffee shop cup sleeve. I had in mind the Lace Love challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show whilst I was making it and added a strip from the Tim Holt 'Decorative Strip' die as well as adding a small piece of real pink lace and a piece from a doiley.

......... and I glued everything straight onto the card itself - no mount!!!!!

I hope you are not too affected by the snow today. It has just stopped here and we have 3 - 4 inches, but I have stayed in the warm and not ventured out at all.

Take care and have a great weekend.
