Yes ,-our new system, on the That`s Crafty Challenge blog starts this months.
The idea is to create two separate creations, but mainly using the same products .
I cheated a bit, as I uses a few other products than on my  "My delicate wings " first piece.

But mainly it is the same procedure this time :  
I used one of the new paints , Bright Blue , mixed with a bit of white, on the panel, and letting it dry .Then the lovely stencil , Mandala was used together with the Metallic Ice Blue ,paint, dabbed through it, twice , -drying in between each layer.

The difference is that I this time couldn`t resist using one of the newer stamps , the
text stamp on the background, and furthermore ,before stamping it directly, I adhered a piece of tea dyed tissue paper.

The butterfly and leaf were both covered in the Metallic Ice Blue and details added with orange paint 
and black Posca pen, Silver threads were adhered to the flower, and a part of one of Lynne`s Affirmations stamped onto a rest of the dyes tissue.
The leaf was adhered with a piece of painted lace under, and butterfly and text, also adhered with the 
Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive .
That`s it for my second Challenge Creation this months.

That's very lovely, dearest Dorthe. The shade of blue is so pretty and and goes very well with the browns. I adore what you've done to the leaf. It looks amazing, my friend!
Hugs and love,

I really love this - the echo of the butterfly wings in the delicate leaf edges, and that pop of orange which makes the blue even bluer - such a clever, pretty piece.
