butterflies to the stars

Today I used stamps, regular ones and found objects, to create my background.


For the found objects ( like some lego, bottlecaps, toiletrol)


I like to use my gelli plate as stamp pad, brayer it up with a juicy layer of paint and stamp away. As an added bonus I have some wicked printed papers.


The stars are stencilled and outlined with a white gel pen. 
The butterflies traced with a stencil and cut out of patterned paper.


I would like to enter this page to following challenges

    1. thx sue, but I think mixed media is easier than cardmaking, anything goes with mixed media, cards on the other hand have to be perfectly measured...
