Oriental Butterfly

A cute and quick little project to show you today - I have briefcase that I am altering and eventually she will be used to decorate the outside.... meanwhile I am entering her in this weeks challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers - the challenge being for embossing this time around.

Check out the challenge and all the inspiration from the DT here -

This image is from Sweet Pea Stamps of course and colored with prismacolor pencils.
Next I embossed the oriental writing over the top with distress embossing powder - I wiped off part of the embossing powder that was over her face and arm - leaving the one on her shoulder cause I thought it looked like a cool tattoo.

I thought the orange flowers added a nice touch.

All for this am - need to do a bit of house cleaning before heading for the craft room and eventually to work tonight.....

Take Care

P.S. Also entering her for the newest challenge over at In a Sweet Pea Dream - for 'anything goes'

Thank you for the message you left on my blog regarding Mr Linky and not being able to comment. I'd already put a message on our Admin Blog as I'd noticed no Mr Linky but I have e-mailed our DT Administrator saying there's no Mr Linky and that you've been unable to comment. Thanks for making us aware of this. Best wishes, Kym xxx
