An Homage To.....

...........THE Wendy Vecchi. For those of you not familiar with THE Wendy Vecchi - please click here - this link will transport you quite effortlessly over to the blog of the lady herself. Take a look - it's quite breathtaking.
So on to my poor imitation

This is for this week's challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog. The challenge is to create a piece of art in the style of (THE) Wendy Vecchi. Now unfortunatly I don't yet own any of her stamps so I had to improvise. I used chipboard for the base, an old wooden cotton reel (I know spooly things are what's proper - but they were out of stock) grungepaper flowers and a few bits of bling. The foliage was cut on my Cuttlebug. Oh and the butterflies were punched out of grungepaper with a Stampin' Up punch. I also used a S'U stamp (Flight of the Butterfly) to put the polka dots on the flowers and butterflies. All were coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and spritzed with mica powders.
Thanks for looking - Jacqueline xx
