I thought I'd whip out the old Martha Stewart Circle Border Punch Starter kit for this project. With it, I made a 7" doily using Prima's awesome Royal Menagerie paper. I cut the doily in half and inked and blended the edges with different colors of Distress Ink.
I bent the doily halves into cone shapes and connected them together.
Next I stamped and colored this amazing stamp from Penny Black called Melle Papillon. I cut off the skirt portion of the stamp and attached the girl's torso to my doily skirt instead.
I added some butterflies using my go-to Martha Stewart butterfly punches in the big and smaller sizes and outlined the butterflies with a Sharpie pen. I finished it off with this great quote that's part of Dina Wakley's Collaged Hearts stamp set.
