Our House - Butterfly - Fly Free


This week the challenge at Our House - We have Butterflies in the house.

My house has butterflies set free to fly. The background paper is from Cosmo Cricket, I used a little narrow piece using the other side for the roof line and the two corners I cut off to make the peak I painted with Crackle Paint in Shabby Shutters and Tattered Rose. While the paint was still wet I added glitter for that bit of sparkle. I cut the window and added an orange background for contrast of colors and a little ribbon for the shutters. The butterflies are from a vintage sticker sheet that I printed on Photo paper and I only adhered them in the center so their wings can fly. The buttons are from Foof-a-la and I used my Dymo Labler to create the words. I sanded the words a bit and added Distressed Ink in Tea Dye to bring out the letters. The little flowers are also from Cosmo Cricket and I added a bit of glitter glue to them.
