Welcome to day 3 of GIU. Wow is it flying by fast! I hope you are enjoying my creations. I have really enjoyed making them. I went for some home decor for today's project some butterfly branches. I wanted to make my butterfly branches using my favourite Unity butterfly stamp called A Friend Loveth. If you look through my blog I have used this stamp many many times it is my favourite butterfly stamp. I just love it the butterflies are just a perfect size and shape for so many projects. I asked my husband to go out to the garden and bring me in a small branch. Where we live backs out on to a little wooded area so there are lots of branches laying around. He walked in the door a few minutes later with half a tree ha! So I broke off a few branches and sent him back outside with the rest :)
Making this is pretty easy all I did was take an empty bottle and pour some white paint inside and let it run out. I left it to dry out over night, it cracks a little as it dries but that is ok. The next day I made the label by painting some kraft card with the same white paint then stamped the sentiment with vintage photo distress ink. I distressed it a little with the same brown ink and also broken china a lovely blue colour. I glued the label to the bottle then wrapped the neck of the bottle with some jute.
I heat embossed the butterflies with white embossing powder on to kraft card and fussy cut them all out. I used some stickles glitter glue on the body of the butterfly that matched the same distress ink. Finally I glued each one to the branches.
I hope you enjoyed my project today it was something a wee bit different. I find I get bored making just cards and like to venture out and do new things with my rubber stamps. Remember and leave a comment for your chance to win 2 Itty Bitty stamps from Unity.
Thanks so much for stopping by I will see you all tomorrow :)
