Butterflies And Moths..................

.........from Tim's Papillon set are one of my favourite stamps at the moment, not that I don't have many more but I do seem to keep going back to this one over and over again, I particularly like the text background.  Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge happens to be SHOW your favourite stamp and as I am short on time I have also created my next piece for Grungy Monday which this time around is to use a technique from Tim Holtz's 12 Tags Of Christmas, 2007, Day 10.
I have used the technique on all my stamped pieces, which gives a lovely shabby chic appearance to your finished piece.
I have added black machine stitching to some of the stamped pieces to give extra dimension along with a pen nib and some black snap fasteners.
I have added filmstrip frames and FLY to complete.  Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
