Shades of Monochrome

Hi all.  Today I want to share a project I made for my daughter and as Country View Crafts challenge this month is monochrome this is just perfect.

I have made a number of these shades as commissions and they have all been great fun, very girly and completely unique.

The paper used is a DCWV stack "Black and White Stack".  I have also used velum to layer the buttereflies.  I used my Sizzix Eclips machine and a Tonic butterfly punch to make all the templates.  I then added lots of bling and sparkle with the beads and lace.  This lace is very old and was found in a cupboard at my mum's church, so ancient indeed.  It did need to be aired as it was very odourous haha

Why don't you click over to the blog and check out some more fantastic creations:

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend.
