Orange peel and M for matching pair

Well, it was a waste of time writing about work in the last post but one, the whole 'doing contract hrs from now on' didn't pan out *lol* back to 24/30 hrs after just 1 week. And ended up working 7 days non stop due to *cough* higher management mucking up the rota. Two days off together were BLISS and I've recharged my batteries..... for now *g*

Actually made a card as well, and got mucky in the process (the best bit).

Over at  Mrs A's buttefly blog, the new challenge is 'M for matching pair and/or the colour orange peel'. As I read it, bright orange splats popped into my mind. I know plain weird eh?

So out came the Vermillion acrylic paint tube and everything did indeed go splat!

I used the vermillion and teamed it with lamp post black paint, and for the 'matching pair' two plain wooden butterfly embellies painted in the Vermillion many times to get the bright orange colour.

The sentiment stamp is from Visible image and stamped in black stazon, finally used a bright orange promarker to edge all the papers.

  1. Iove your dedication to getting just the right shades of orange and I love your splatters. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden.

  2. Love the splats. This looks like it was fun to create, and lovely matching butterflies too. Kate x
