Garden in a Bottle

Hello the month of May. It’s time to take a look at a new sketch over at the Ed’s Sketch? The challenge for this month is to make use of your butterfly stamps.

Here is my take on the sketch:

Then I realised that I have these images of bottles in my collection. Perfect ! photo GardenBottle3_SB_29Apr13_zps1402a0e0.jpgNext, I picked out my Purple Onion butterfly stamps and stamped them on the background paper.

I took out my trusty typewriter to churn out the journaling. I like the vintage element.
So there you have it – a page I’m happy with,
