Something old, something new ... part 2!

My submission for the Inspiration Avenue creative challenge this week - our task was to create something inspired by "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue".

The butterfly image is an old theme for me, which I return to a lot; as well as being beautiful, in some cultures butterflies are thought to represent the human soul. 
 I love the look of old things generally, and I've given the the little luggage tag here an aged feeling with some distress ink.

The butterfly image I've used is a vintage one, so I'm counting that as both old and borrowed!
I've used a new technique for me - some rather fab self-adhesive paper from Letraset - to transfer the butterfly image to the doily.

And - well, the blue part is self-explanatory really!

I've added this little canvas to my etsy shop.
You can find all this week's submissions here.

I hope that the old year has left you with wonderful memories, and that the new one will bring you everything you hope for.
Wishing everyone a wonderfully happy and creative 2012!
