Hello sweet friends! For this week's challenge, I wanted to alter a frame for my grandmother's 92nd birthday.
Since the theme is roses and I didn't have a rose stamp, I rolled and twisted a strand of ribbon into a rose. It was very easy, if you'd like further directions, see this tutorial. I then paired the roses with my Bold Medium Butterfly stamp, and it was a perfect combination.
I started by stamping my butterfly stamp onto vellum using white embossing ink and white embossing powder.
After heating it, I cut out the butterflies and wrapped them with floral wire stamen.
Using craft paint, I painted in some wispy lines onto my frame. I coated the lines with Mod Podge. I adhered the butterflies and roses with some clear craft glue. I also added some smaller butterflies that are from a punch. I finished with a few pearls.
I took three of my leftover butterflies and made a matching monochromatic card. I hand wrote the sentiment in Chinese with a white pen.

This is my last project as a guest designer this month. It was a pleasure to work with you all!
