Memory Box 'Hampstead Butterfly Stem'

I needed to take a few 'Thinking of You' cards today. These are aways difficult to make but I am sure they are appreciated by the families of departed loved ones. It can also be quite a positive thing, a time to remember the person who has passed on and remember the good, fun times :-) 


I used a lovely Hampstead Butterfly Stem Die. I dabbed and smooshed watercolour paper in a puddle of Peeled Paint  Distress Oxide Ink and spritzed with shimmer. I used the same technique for the butterflies using Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Oxide Inks too. 


For the background I used a Tim Holtz Embossing folder and finished with a few sequins.  


Thanks for looking! :-)
