Made of wood............a bangle :D

Well there isn't long left to enter the Happy Daze facebook challenge which is currently "made with wood"

I used one of THESE fabby bangles as my wooden base :D

I coloured it first of all with inka gold in Platinum.
I stamped my butterflies on to fibre paper with archival ink, ripped the edges away to the size needed to cover the bangle leaving frayed edges, then stuck on to the bangle with a glue stick.
When dry I coloured it with promarkers and then brushed on more of the inka gold.
When dry and buffed I glued on the lace and buttons with Claudine Hellmuths matte medium andcoated the rest of the bangle - this is amazing as it just doesn't budge when dry and selals the stamped images.
When totally dry I highlighted areas again with the inka gold.

I am also going to add this to the Simon says stamp and show challenge this week which is to show some buttons .............. buttons??? did someone say buttons :D
no challenge for me this week really LOL :D
