Enjoy...Blue Fern Studios Blog Hop 105

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, February 7, 2013 @ 10:00 PM | , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the first Blue Fern Studios Blog Hop! This hop is a biggie so I will get right to the details. It runs from today until February 10th, 2013, there's LOTS of amazing inspiration to see along the way and there is a wonderful GRAND PRIZE to be had!
I made an 8" x 8" canvas featuring a beautiful butterfly from the Brigitte Butterfly Set along with an elegant Blue Fern Flourish.
After creating the background with lots of modeling paste, stencils, paint and spray, I added a coat of embossing enamel to the chipboard butterfly then topped it off with a blossom. 
I liked the way the pretty Blue Fern Flourish looked "naked" so, I left it as is and simply adhered a few blossoms in place.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you liked my project! If you are participating in the hop, your next stop will be Patter Cross. Happy hopping!
Be Sweet ;)
