Clouded Yellow Butterfly

Hi, today is my design for the Stamps and Stencils blog challenge - Time Flies -

My design is using PaperArtsy paints for the background brayered on randomly, then I used a Clarity Stamps Alphabet Stencil with blue oyster paint, various PaperArtsy stamps using distress inks and snowflake paint. The main focus of my background is a Clarity Stamp Stencil of clock parts stenciled using Cinnamon paint. I added my sentiment ... every minute is a possibility ...  for the hungry caterpiller heading towards the flowers, stamped on card and cut out. The card was coloured using distress ink sprays. With the completion of the life cycle a beautiful butterfly. Coloured in shades of yellow and brown to remind me of the Clouded Yellow butterfly that I was lucky enough to see on monday, 17th August.

I am going to enter this design into the PaperArtsy Blog Challenge - Circles- too where I was inspired by the design from Gabrielle journalling circles.

Thank you for visiting and reading about my design,

I was so lucky to have my design chosen in the Top 3 of the Stamps and Stencils blog challenge and to have been randomly chosen on the PaperArtsy blog challenge. Thrilled.
