Blue Butterfly

Hello

I like this card as it has a simplistic feel to it and is not overly complicated but remains interesting.

I started with the collage stamping which uses a few different stamps, including a Daisy Harlequin stamp from Chocolate Baroque and a Butterfly Wishes stamp from Hobby Art together with a flourish and text stamp from my collection.

I then used a Spellbinders Label die to cut an aperture which I filled using another Spellbinders die in co-ordinating paper, which I also used for matting the whole card.

Another Spellbinder die, this time a butterfly which differs to the background piece was added together with a wire beaded body as the focal element.

The last finishing touch was to add 3 squares in each corner.

I hope you like this card as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by.

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.
