Bearly a butterfly


So it’s the last week of the month long Love & Hearts challenge at Just Some Lines.Well,that’s another month over!To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3.

I’ve taken this sweet Butterfly Bear by Just Some Lines and coloured her with soft pastel pencils,blended out for a softer appearance.I remembered I had this heart paper buried in my stash and just had to dig it out to use with her 🙂 I drew on some faux stitching around the edges.I punched a border down one side of the vertical strip and used some dies to cut out the bear and stamped sentiment.A couple of adhesive gems cover the holes,where you would normally place a brad,on the sentiment piece to give a prettier look.The flower has been stamped onto more of the patterned paper and cut out.A heart shaped button has been adhered to the centre to cover the round one that’s on the image and a couple of wooden leaves have been placed either side as a finishing touch.This was a last minute decision but I like it 🙂
