This week on Make My Monday

We are still looking for Things with wings but this week we would like you to use some Acetate on your project.

So here is mine.

This week I have done a wall hanging as I was already playing about with the corrugated card in my craft room, I decided to use that. I started by covering a Tattered Angels mask with a metallic blue texture paint, then cut out two butterflies with a Marianne Design Die, one with blue card and the other with acetate.

As you can see in this close up I covered the acetate butterfly with blue and white inks to give the soft mottled effect, I then glued both together in the centre and added come black stones.

I then made three paper flowers to go in the bottom right corner. I love making these as no two are ever the same, I just draw them by hand, cut and roll and see what happens. After I had finished with the main part of the wall hanging I went looking for some plastic mesh I have to finish it off. As normal with me I couldn't find it but I had some chicken wire under the table from a project I had done a while back, so I cut a piece of that to size, added some leaf ribbon and the cardboard and that is it finished.

Do come over to Make My Monday and have a look at what the rest of the team have been up to this week, and join in the fun.

I would also like to enter this over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where this weeks challenge is to use handmade flowers.
