June Challenge - Altered Eclectics

Morning all,

I can't believe it's June already! at least we've been having some gorgeous weather here in Leeds for a change, lol.

It's also new challenge day over at Altered Eclectics. I decided it was about time I corralled all my paintbrushes in one place, rather than having them scattered in several places, so I grabbed a pen pot blank from the MDF man, and made this:

The paint I used is actually bronze and quite shimmery, and the bits that look white are a sparkly blue pigment, but I had some trouble capturing that on camera.

The heart was die-cut from a piece of board, then painted and covered in crackle medium. I embedded the butterfly - which I had distressed previously - into the medium while it was still wet, so it appears to be coming out of the heart.
The "Create art" sentiment is Snipart, which I got from Craft Box.

That's it for my first post of the morning. I'll be back in a minute with the next. Don't forget to come and join us this month!
