Stampendous and Deflecto All Week

Hello and welcome to a new week and a great new product partner blog hop. Stampendous and the design team have partnered with Deflecto Craft all week long for some fun and new products to decorate and use!

My project today is really quite fun and easy.

I received this display frame with a black border so all I needed to make was a mat.

The butterfly is an extra I made from my altered box last week, you know it's always good to have extras when the need for that embellishment strikes and this time the butterfly inspired making the flower mat.

The butterfly was die cut out first and painted with a white base coat and 2:1 mix of Diaxonide Purple and Titanium White and anther mix of Phthalo Blue-Green and White. It was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then more detail paint was add for the spots and body highlights. It's attached to the frame with putty adhesive so if I ever want to move it or change out the style it will be super easy.

The mat was made with black cardstock and the Antique Technique from Fran's Embossing Powder Techniques from A to Z. This is an amazing book, I just looked through it again and am excited to try out more and more techniques. Maybe I'll start at A and go through the book to Z, or maybe I'll be more artistic and just pick them on a whim.
