Saturday Sequins

I was a bit worried when I saw that the latest challenge at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge is S for Sequins, as the only ones I have are Christmas ones, and Christmas and butterflies don't really go together. Then I opened a new pack of mixed embellishments and found that it contained some sparkly flower-shaped sequins - just the job!

I don't have any of the messy, splashy background stamps that are so popular just now, that always look so good with a few sequins added, so I fished about in my "rarely used odds and ends" box and found an ancient sheet of uncut rubber with a sort of random scribble stamp in it. I'm not sure what it's meant to represent, but it looked quite pretty stamped with the pink end of a Kaleidacolor Birthstone pad. The butterfly stamp was a magazine freebie.

The ´scribbly´stamp worked well. Like you, I found using sequins a challenge, but it is surprising what we can find isn´t it? That is a nice little freebie butterfly too. Kate x
