Ever Increasing.... Butterflies

In response to my last post Sian made the brilliant suggestion that the butterflies would look great mounted in a frame. Well as it happens I had a frame that had been sitting around my craft room just waiting for some inspirational idea to come along...........What do you think?

It would make the perfect gift for a butterfly loving friend and the butterflies could be coloured in their favourite colours or to match decor or even stamped on some pretty paper.
Thanks Sian for your suggestion, all brilliant ideas gratefully received :-)

Last week at the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show I bought an art doll stamp from B Line Designs. I'd been debating for some time as to whether to buy one or not but it was there right in front of me........so far I have only got around to stamping and colouring the image, she is still awaiting construction. I think the main body part would look good as a dressform on a card.

There were so many stamps to ponder at the show and my resistance was low, I'll share some more of those next time.Thank you too, to all of you who suggested a tutorial for the wreath - I'll get working on it. I'd love to share my idea with you and hopefully I'll have it ready soon.
