Butterfly tree...

Believe it or not, this is an offcut of wood - I think it was a sort of plaque thing cut in half - that I've decorated with paint, papers, stamps and die cuts.
The stamps are all Crafty Individuals, and I've used quite a few different ones and parts of images as well:

The little girl is from one of the new sets CI-292 She just seemed to be looking in the right direction! The leaves and flowers climbing up the tree are from CI-149 and CI-262.
If you look carefully you can just see part of the Steampunk Butterfly in the background and the birdcage.

The diecuts are also from Crafty Individuals, from the Collections range. I just loved this tree and birdhouse.
The gold paint I've used is Eco Green Pure Gold from The Craft Barn. It's a really lovely gold.

Thanks for looking!

Helen, this is just delightful! I've been eyeing some of the new stamps up, and I love what you've done here. The little girl looks so quaint, and the birdhouse is really gorgeous. The leaves combined with the tree are fab, Judith xx
