POPPIES & BUTTERFLY IN BLUE

I used some lovely stamps from Chocolate Baroque in this card.

I started with the poppies and harlequin and stamped in black ink onto blue cardstock with the text stamp on the opposite side. I used watercolour pencils to colour the fabulous poppies and added a white highlight.

The backing paper is also using the text stamp but in blue and using the second generation of ink.  The corner stamp is using the 1st generation of the same coloured ink and is also from Chocolate Baroque. A beautiful corner which I use a LOT!

The butterfly also from the same set of stamps, I stamped onto blue parchment and embossed areas to give shape and the beautiful parchment whitework.  The body is simply various blue beads threaded onto wire which is then curled to form the antennae.

With the addition of some ribbon and some black cardstock, the card is finished!

All for now. Thanks for stopping by.
