"Butterfly Pouch "

Afternoon all. I made a pouch for the wall hanging I made last week.

I am linking this up to  Flying Unicorn. Please check them up, its a marvelous blog. They have an
 E-magazine, swaps, a kit of the month, sketches, product reviews, tuts etc. They have numerous monthly challenges, with great prizes, and you can enter as many challenges as you want with one item;  actually they encourage you to challenge yourself to do so.

So, I will be entering, Distress it all Lovely lace, and 3 Stamps...

I used a basmati rice bag as the base, fringed all the edges, sprayed with Ranger Butterscotch Color wash using aTim Holtz mask . made a border to keep my lace in...

I stamped on fabric,  using a Crafty Individuals butterfly and background stamp, the "My friend" is a Papertrey stamp, fringed the edges and adhered to a leftover paper from my butterfly project, distressed the edges. Colored the butterfly in with Lindys Stamp Gang Mica powders...

This is a Magenta stamp, also stamped on fabric, which is distressed with some TH inks,  and coloured in with the micas ( can't get the shine of the micas to come through on my pics ); fringed edges, held down with a stick pin, coloured my lace with the Butterscotch spray...

This is the back...

and this is the wall hanging going in...


  1. Not only do I love this piece because of its beauty I love the use of the rice bag which is such a fabulous base.
    So much to take in that I need to take another peek and another.
    The colours are vivid but at the same time they are not brash there is an aged beauty to them.
    Quite fabulous my friend.

  2. gorgeous work here, gisele--the colors and layers are just beautiful:)

  3. Oh wow, Gisele, this is totally fantastic, my friend. What fabulous work~it is a feast for the eyes with the textures and colors and so much beauty.

  4. What I love about this amazing creation that it all started with a simple thing such s a rice bag. And I am wondering again; what inspired you to start with a rice bag and turn it into a jewel? I love every piece and bit of it but that butterfly took my breath away. I am drooling!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
    Love and hugs,


Oh, how I love your comments...
