I am sharing a couple of Bee Crafty stamps today.
I have actually stuck this onto some chipboard and will probably get it framed ( Yes Donna I am taking your advice)
 I have decided to start puting my work into frames and hang them around the house instead of them getting put into boxes and forgotten about.
I have used on of my Gelli Backgrounds for this, simply stamping over the top with Black Versafine ink  I have stuck this onto some black card that has been embossed and highlighted with Gilding

I chose to make a Gelli background for my creation today..Quite a few photo's I'm afraid

I started by  putting some blobs of paint on my Gelli plate

Brayered the paint all over but not completely mixing the colours

Then laid another stencil over and dabbed some of the paint off the leaves with tissue. Then remove the stencil and lay my card over and press well to get the paint onto my card

With my background cut to size I then decorated it with the Tim Holtz butterfly that had been white embossed onto a scrap of paper that had been used to clean my brayer

The finished card with a sentiment and
