Flutter By Blog Hop

Many of you know that Danni of Danni's Dreams has been hosting her own Flutter By Wednesday Challenges for quite some time. Well now Flutter By has its very own blog. To celebrate, Danni is having a blog hop for you to meet the design team and guest design team members. I am honored to say that I will be one of the guest designers January - March. I have been a regular follower and admirer of Danni's blog and all the fabulous creations displayed there and am very excited to participate! So without further adieu!

Welcome to our fluttering hop!! We are excited to share with you our NEW Flutter By Wednesday blog and our new fluttering creations. If you are starting with me, please flutter back to the beginning of the hop at Danni's blog. We'd hate for you to miss a thing...you never know what you might see to inspire you! If you get lost along the way, you can always go back to Danni's blog where a master list of Flutter By Blog Hoppers is listed.

The theme for this week and for the blog hop is "New". What's new? New supplies, resolutions, goals, etc. I don't do resolutions any more. I try to live every day the best I can and not have to make myself  "better" for the new year. So I decided to go with New Stamps! I have had the stamp set for awhile but I have never inked it up so therefore it's New!

The stamps are Symmetry (Butterflies) sheet #3 by Stampscapes. I saw them at a craft show a few years back and had to have them. I think they are a bit intimidating so I didn't ink them up. They're so beautiful there was no way I could do them justice. Well I decided to stamp the largest butterly on some alcohol ink splatter background paper I created ala Tim Holtz and then I cut it out. I thought it looked pretty snazzy. I them stamped the large flourish in white on turquoise paper. I am pleased with the results. I kept looking at it to see what else it needed and decided to let the butterfly shine. Hope you like it.



Now, flutter on to the next stop in the hop, Shana of  Two Cute Little Monsters. Have fun and enjoy the sights!

You did a beautiful job with this butterfly. It's a beauty. I'm going to have to try that technique. I'm a little afraid of those alchohol inks. You've surely inspired me to give it a try.
