I made this plaque for my Mum and Dad back in July to say thank you for my birthday presents!
I started off with some art parts which I bought through the Crafty Boots Stash Savers Club.
I started off by colouring the base using dusty concord distress stain and then used the butterflies from the 'Bliss' stamp set from Crafty Boots
I stamped the butterflies in black ink all over the plaque and then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls spray, also from Crafty Boots.
I painted the flourishes on the frame with gold Perfect Pearls spray to make it stand out from the rest of the frame.
I painted the smaller frames with 'Pretty Pink' paint from Crafty Boots and then stamped sentiments from the Fan and Thankyou Mae stamp sets, also from Crafty Boots!
Finally, I stamped the Butterflies from the Bliss set again but this time on grunge paper. I stamped them in dusty concord and then painted them with the gold Perfect Pearls spray again. Finally I added some tiny pearls to the butterflies.
To finish it off I used some pink ruffled ribbon from Stampin Up to enable the hanging of the plaque.
