Purple butterfly ATCs

The ATC swap for the group on the Bubbly Funk forum this month is 'butterflies'. Having used some butterfly stamps before for swaps on BF I needed to think of something different for this swap.

I came across a new ATC challenge blog called Wicked Wednesday and their first challenge is: all about you. I decided to make these ATCs all about me in the sense of what I love to use for crafting - the colour purple, butterflies, torn and inked edges, stamping, distressed inks ... and, of course, beautiful papers. I used a double sided paper by Prima from their Indeed collection 'enchanted' - the torn pieces are from the reverse side and I stamped Penny Black butterfly edges with stazon vibrant violet, distressing torn edges with dusty concord DI and also using this to 'water colour' the butterfly images I stamped above (a little stamp with no name that I've had for ages - can't remember where it came from).

These are also for:

Corrosive 135: flying things
Stamptacular 134: you choose
