Crafting Musketeers Challenge #10.....

Good Afternoon peeps... yes its challenge time again, (the reminder post using Team B's creations that is).

The theme for this challenge is "Butterflies" and it has been sponsored by the wonderful

Here is a little bit about them.

 Dreamees is run by mother and daughter team Carol and Hayley Bignall.
"Founded in 2010, Dreamees has grown from strength to strength over the past months. We've managed to secure stands at shows around the country (venturing from Worcester up to Sunderland and across as far as Manchester & Hull!) and have recently decided to aim for larger shows including Whichcraft and the NEC (Nov 2012). With over 15 CD Roms and a range of polymer stamps that grows weekly, Dreamees has successfully featured in many leading papercraft magazines such as 'Complete Cardmaking with your PC', 'Papercraft Essentials', 'The Complete Guide to Digital Crafting' and soon to be 'Creative Cardmaking'.
Dreamees became manufacturers of Polymer plates in January 2012 and have since supplied growing and established businesses, along with providing custom stamps for paper crafters.
As of November 2013, Dreamees have appeared on Create & Craft TV multiple times and continue to do so."

Right: here is my project for this month and again, from me, its another altered item. This time I have decorated a 3 set of "wood" planters & tray.  
Photos from start to finish (well, until I seal them with waterproof varnish):

I used a black gesso paint by Indigo Blue for the base main colour & added a textured paint in a stone colour by Stamps Away around the rim of the pots & tray. I even painted the inside of each pot in the black. I might go over the black inside of the pots with an acrylic paint when I have more time.

The butterflies were painted using the textured paint in the stone colour & a lovely pumpkin colour. I painted the butterflies through one of 2 Spellbinder dies that I have (from the Papillion set). Thats why they are so rough. On the opposite side to the stone & pumpkin coloured butterflies I painted a different shape of butterfly in a glitter paste, 2 were done in the gold colour & one in the silver (as shown in one of the above photos).

Well, pop over to the Challenge Blog, and try your luck to win this fabulous prize of: 

Fiery Flower stamp, a Daisy Chain Stamp, a small Butterfly stamp and the Fly By Butterflies CD

You have until the end of the month to enter!!! Good Luck ;0
