You Can Create It! - UK - with Floral Wings

Welcome Back To Our Monthly Challenge!

Scroll down for full details of how to play!

This is the kit we got to play with in May .......

And .... This is what I created .......

I used the Floral Wings Hostess stamp set and the Gift Bag Punch Board.

The bag was simple .... I used an A4 sheet and created a standard Large bag. Although it's recommended that you use a piece of card that's 12" wide for the Large bag, you can get away with the A4 - your side tab will end up very narrow though.

The background mat was stamped with the Watercolour Wash stamp - I inked it with Mint Macaron and stamped it 'off' first.

I hadn't used the Butterfly from the Floral Wings stamp set yet, so decided to use it for this project. It's a 3-step stamping image - you have a separate stamp for the Butterfly, the leaves and the flowers. Because the set is Photopolymer, it's very easy to line up each of the images.

I used the new Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut out the Butterfly, then cut another from Vellum using the Butterflies Thinlits to layer over the top. These two sets, coordinate perfectly with each other and the Floral Wings stamp set :o)

Here is Monica's beautiful project .......  

If you hop over to Monica's Blog you can see photos of some of our Players projects :o)

You must use at least a part of everything we provide in the kit when you create your project. If you wish to, you can also add additional items from your own supplies. 

When you have finished your project, if you take a photo of it and send it to us .... we will showcase it on one of our blogs on the 1st day of the following month - along side our own creations for that month.

If you have a Facebook Page or if you Blog yourself, you can display it there with a link back to us if you wish to :o)
