Vive la difference!

When I was in France my lovely friend and ex sister in law and her hubby took me to 'NOZ', an amazing mixture of the good, the bad and the obscure!
I found these little trays…..
…..3" x 3" and in a pack of six. Yes there are only five here!
I thought, (hoped) that I could do something with them, so this week, having cleared my desk at last I set to with alcohol inks, book paper, twinkling H20s, a butterfly stamp and some paper flowers to make this
  Sorry, I'll show you another - it's a bit shinier!
Not sure about the bit of doily but it looked a bit plain without it, I added a bit of brushed pewter distress stain on the wings and the flowers to make the shine a bit!
Oh! how I wish I'd bought more, they were only one euro!

I am entering this in Sunday Stampers- Show some depth
                      Ali-craft - Butterflies
                      Simon Says Stamp and Show - A little      
Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh, Chris - this is exquisite... absolutely wonderful to have the vision of how to alter those sweet little glass frames, and then to execute it so perfectly - gorgeous!

I love the effect with the Alcohol inks. This is such a pretty result you would never believe that it was a transformation of one of those little trays: gorgeous! This would make such a super gift, I can see why you wish you'd bought more. Julie Ann xx
