A New (to me) Challenge site

We added a new challenge to the Wednesday list at Challenges for Days yesterday, Butterfly Challenge.   This is the second week of their 6th fortnightly challenge.   For this site you have to use a butterfly or more on your project.    The theme of this challenge is Glamours Butterflies, use glitter and bling.

I have a small stamp mountain of butterfly images, probably true of most of us.  This then is a site bound to appeal to me.   For this piece I've used 3 Kaiser Craft stamps, the bodice by Stampendous and a swirl of unknown origin.   All the inks for stamping are Adirondack, Docrafts/Whisper pens for colouring the images.   An ink duster added more colour around the edge.   Stickles has been used to trace the outlines of the butterflies, being clear and sparkly it picks up the colour amplifying it.   Then during a sleepless period last night a row of small pearls added to the body of the bottom butterfly and some sparkly adhesive gems added to the others.

The Sisterhood of Crafters are looking for things with wings.
Craft your passion are all up in the air with things that can fly
Crafty Cardmakers want Insects to be our focal points.
Addicted to Stamps want Things with Wings
Fashionable Stamping have requested Flying Things.

This project is on the reverse of the Izhe image posted previously, I've found a different way of creating a little sample journal which I'll share with you in a week or so.   Just sharing some of the projects for it now.
