She flies upon the written word

It's been warm here in the wilds of South Carolina, I'm getting kinda confused about what time of year it is. Being from the north I have to remind myself that it's winter here not spring or summer. I'm not complaining just  a change to get used to. To set myself back on course, I thought I'd return to one of my favorite images today of this gorgeous woman's face. It's one of those go to stamps, I adore. I'm entering it in Fashionable Challenge #13 Butterflies or Bugs and of course Beverly's Pink Saturday.

 I stamped the woman's face watercolored her eyes and lips and also stamped a  teenie tiny pink heart on her cheek. The butterfly was stamped next on vellum and cut out. These were all layered on a hot pink feather butterfly that has rhinestones, glitter and Stickles accents. A rhinestone crown, lots of silver Stickles touches, ribbon and fiber streamers and a silver cord to hang up my pretty butterfly came next.

Hope you will fly away on written words this week
take care, gerri
