pink and butterflies

I am currently in the process of reorganizing my clear stamps. Because the system with a ringband and laminated sheets of paper on to which the stamps cling to isn't working for me, due to the fact that the stamps don't always cling anymore so they fall out of the folder. That's the reason why I didn't continue organizing this way and just put my stamps in a drawer, disasterious.
Now I'm going to try using CD cases instead. I am also making a catalogue of my stamps, so it is easy to browse and see what I have. After stamping I used a piece of paper to clean of my stamps, it is this scrap paper I used as basis for my calendar page for August. 



As the 2 prompts from the Craft Barn are pink and butterflies, I sprayed the page with a pink Dylusions ink spray (I need to restock as I'm running low)



Next I added some fern stencilling and completed it with some beautiful butterflies.



yes, I managed to finish this month way in time.

  2. Fabulous make, Vicki - I particularly like the push pull of the pink through the fern stenciling. And those butterflies are just gorgeous.
