Sir Stampalot Challenge "Butterflies and Blossoms"

To fulfill this challenge I decided to make something a bit different this time.  I have decorated a wooden bird house with butterflies and blossoms.  I purchased this bird house from a B&M store for £1.49.

To create the decorated bird house I used: Stamps: Papermania Henbury Lane. Personal Impressions Flourishes. Hobby Art Cherry Blossom.  Cardstock: white hammered.  Paper: Design Paper K & Company Seasonal pack this was used to cut out the butterflies.  Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Rich Cocoa, Bamboo Leaves.  Papermania blue shimmer chalk this was used to create the sky effect all over the background.  Colouring: Marvy Le Plume brush markers these where used for all the stamped images.  Sakura gel pen.  Whispers permanent marker blue.  Dies: Sizzix Sizzlit Branch w/leaves.  Cuttlebug embossing folder Candy Cane Stripe this was used to emboss the roof panels.  Punches: Martha Stewart border Trellis, Scallop Dot.  Woodware small butterfly, flower.  X-Cuts flower.  Tonic Studio Multi butterfly.  Embellishments: Self adhesive pearls, pink, blue glitter.

This project was created for Sir Stampalot Challenge.
