Make it Monday - RED!

This week's challenge from gomakesomething.com's weekly challenge is RED! I used a 5" square canvas to make a little collage using a butterfly from Ten Two Studios collage sheets. This sheet is called Butterfly Cards and is made up of a selection of 19 reproduction cigarette cards from the 20's and 30's.
I seem to be using the backside of stretched canvases a lot lately! This one was perfect to create a small three dimensional specimen. the butterfly is actually pierced on a pin inside the niche of the canvas. Simple french script creates the background. A neat row of redish stamps creates a border along one side of the red paper glued to the canvas.
Please check out go make something's monday challenges and see some fun art:

Diane, Thanks for signing my blog! You were the first one. I now have 4 posts (OH, WOW!), I'm not in this for the fame, luckily. But I must say you have a lovely web site and your art work is enjoyable. Keep on creating, it's there!
