EXHIBIT A 39

Mona Pendleton | Monday, March 14, 2016 @ 8:14 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! I had the itch to stamp so I pulled out a Tim Holtz stamp set that may have been inked once over a year ago! I've been trying to be resourceful and use what I have already in my stash. I created a mixed media style tag featuring a trio of double layered heat embossed butterflies:
For the tag shape, I used a Spellbinders Grand die to cut a piece of upcycled corrugated cardboard which I applied some crackled texture paste to:
Once the crackled texture paste worked its' magic, various Distress Stains were randomly applied. I embellished with a piece of lace from my stash, the stamped butterflies and metal trinkets which I gave a faux enamel appearance using a combination of Distress Paint, Distress Stains and embossing powder:


I'm joining along with the following challenges: the Frilly and Funkie challenge where we are challenged to create a project featuring a trio of something: I featured a trio of butterflies as well as the Creative Carte Blanche where the creative adventure challenge is to create a project using lace, metal and corrugated paper:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi Mona! I think I would have known this was your piece even without seeing your name. :) I so love your feminine touch to your shabby art style. Your butterflies are wonderful! I love their little shabby metal bodies! I also love your white crackled background right on top of the kraft corrugated paper. The pink hues and ribbon are the perfect accent color for this! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Creative Carte Blanche.
