Glasgow Rose Butterfly

The other day I got the latest issue of Creative Stamping magazine which comes with a whole A4 sized sheet of stamps in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's  famous "Glasgow Rose" design. I love the stamps and I think you'll be seeing a LOT of makes using them appear on here over coming weeks and months.

Here is my first make, a butterfly stamped on acetate. coloured and glittered from the back and then mounted in the window of a tri-fold aperture card which itself has been stamped with images from the set.

Ooops! Now I've added the photo, I can see that the bottom right hand stamping is much too far over to the edge - one to earmark for next year's April 1st boo-boo challenge perhaps?

I am sharing this with:

    1. I couldn't find the window to comment, so I'm writing as "reply"...but I love the butterfly on acetate! Great idea! I did notice the bottom right image, but I thought it was intentional! So I guess it's not bad at all! =)
