Sizzix Butterfly

Hi Friends,

I've been playing with some Tim Holtz dies lately and this is what I came up with. I love the new Butterfly Duo with Texture Fades. If you are wondering what those tiny wings are in the center,'s one of the butterflies from the set. I messed up...(actually tore the wing apart) and I had to cover it up. So I decided to add a center "winglet" to do the job.

For the background, I used one of the Mixed Media Thinlits.  I distressed the edges of the background panel and stained it with Walnut Stain and a blending tool.

I also used some of Tim Holtz older stamps to give a grundgy look to the card.

Some Ideaology Wordbands and Pen Nibs for the embellishments and a piece of jute,  seam binding and twine to finish the card.
