Mixed Media Card Challenge

Yes, it's the 1st of JUNE!!! Where is the year going? That means it is coming in to summer for a lot of you, but for some of us Winter has begun. It also means the start of a new Mixed Media Card Challenge and the theme this month is *Collage*, with an option to include a *frame*.





I had a lot of fun with this card. I didn't plan the design, so I think I can call this freestyle collage!
The stamps are oldies (but still available) from Kaisercraft. I stamped the dressform twice and used one as a mask to stamp the chicken wire, butterfly background. Then I stamped the butterfly again and fussy cut it and added some pearls. The dressform was stamped with pigment ink and the background with archival black ink. The butterflies were water coloured and I added some splatters - coz I love them! To finish,  I added a stitched border to represent my *frame*,  some buttons, the silver charm and dyed lace .
