MMM August Theme... Things with Wings

August is the month for Suzanne's theme of  Things with Wings which begins with Butterflies and/or Dragonflies

 My piece is inspired by  some of my favourite music from Puccini's Madam Butterfly which is why I bought this lovely stamp some time ago but this is the first time I've used it.

 The card I've used is a lovely soft cream but is showing up much whiter.. I took several more photos this morning to try and improve the colour reproduction but to no avail :(

Here's a slight variation... which I think I prefer

 Here's work in progress not finished due to time pressures.... hectic week last week and visitors all W/E.


Stamps: Stampington Puccinis Muse
              La Blanche: Music and large butterfly.
              Butterfly Kisses: tiny butterfly
Archival jet Black Ink
Bits and pieces from my stash.

Unfinished pieces: Products
Elusive Images Butterfly Poppy Collage.
 Inktense water colour pencils
Personal Impressions Dragonfly

Thank you to all the people that left lovely messages of support ... I appreciate it very much :))

 Thank you for visiting
take care xx Sue xx

Fabulous card for your first DT post Sue (or any other time if it comes to that, lol). It's very elegant and the imagery is perfect for the challenge. Love your works in progress too.

I've had visitors all weekend too and they only left yesterday evening. Have the house to myself today but it's too darned hot in my craftroom/conservatory at 38 degrees!
