I just finished this altered notebook for my Sister. I'm meeting her in June in Wyoming for a Quilting Camp and this will be a surprise for her.
The Prima paper and chipboard flower branch and butterfly came in my Scrapbook Heaven kit. I used a couple of different glimmer mists on the flower branch and the Rock candy distress Crackle paint which doesn't show up in the picture. For the small butterfly under the saying I used the Stamp and Write marker and Ultra Thick embossing powder.
I stamped my butterflies twice onto cream colored cardstock with distress ink. A trick to keep the distress ink from smearing is to use clear embossing ink on your stamp then use the distress ink. I used pop up dots to raise the butterflies up.
A few left over rhinestones accent the leaves on the pattern paper.
Thanks for stopping by.
