Crafty Individuals October Challenge

Winged things is the October theme for the challenge at Crafty Individuals I have made an altered frame called ButterBird. The frame is painted and crackled then rubbed with DIs and metallic rubs. The stamps used are CI182 Swirl and the bugs also CI but I can't recall the number. The stamps are used on the frame and the background, the background is swiped with DIs. The Bird and cage is good old Tim Holtz die and I have painted splattered in ink and clear embossed. To finish added the delightful vintage butterfly wings and some beading. Thanks for looking. Hugs Sandra XX
