Rose and Lemon Butterfly

Hello

I have a quick card to share today with a butterfly on unsurprisingly….sorry!

I started with a print using a spellbinder die which I then cut using a label shape.

I added a few matts and flourish dies together with my butterfly…of course and the card is finished.

A quick and simple card but bright and jolly I think.

Thanks for visiting my little blog today.

Pink and Purple Butterflies

Hello

I have another card on the same theme as http://wp.me/p385yc-qg but this time in pink & purple.

WP_20140825_017

I started with stamping the butterflies in purple ink and colourised the background with pink and purple pastels.

I used a Sue Wilson die to cut out a border but did not use the outside edge so the die stayed in the stamping. I used an XCut die for the letters which I arranged on a length of ribbon.

A little matting and layering and the addition of a purple butterfly … of course! and the card is finished.

I hope you like it.

Collaged Triple Stamping

Hello

I have a card to share today using a selection of stamps from my collection.  The focal butterfly stamp and corner stamp are both from Chocolate Baroque.

I love collage stamping, mainly because it reduces the need to select and choose, but unfortunately a lot of the time the stamping will be hidden in the background.

I therefore like this style of triple stamping card because the background remains visible.

WP_20140710_011

I used a brown inkpad for the background stamping, gold embossing powder for the butterfly and gilding flakes for the corners.

Butterflies of Paradise

Hello

Right. Normal service is resumed following birthday celebrations and today I have a quick card to share which I am really sorry includes butterflies and purple.  Oh what the hec, no I’m not sorry I love them.

WP_20140627_015

I started with my background and stamped 2 butterflies in black ink and masked.  I then stamped in purple ink a Bird of Paradise stamp, a flourish and a text stamp. I chalked over the whole background and coloured the butterflies in using coloured pencils.

WP_20140627_004

I then layered my background onto a co-ordinated colour cardstock and stamped the text stamp and elements of the flourish in black ink.

The finishing touch, as always is to add a 3D butterfly with wire antennae (or in this case add 4)

I hope you like it.

See you again soon

Butterfly Mixed Media

Hello

Isn’t it lovely to have a little sun for the Easter holidays.

Today I have another butterfly card to share, using the lovely Chocolate Baroque stamps.

WP_20140408_003

I started with a background painted in 3 shades of acrylic paint.

WP_20140408_004

I stamped the main focal image in black embossing powder and used clear embossing powder for the images around the edge.

I lastly added some butterflies using gilding flakes.

Twinchies – 3 techniques in 3 colours and 1 stamp

Hello

I have some more Twinchies today, which is always a nice way to start a week.

WP_20140223_001

I really had fun with these, all using the same Butterfly stamp in 3 colourways.

The first trio is simply stamped and coloured in using pencils.  Then using embossing folders I have inked in a corresponding colour to accent the embossing and then flattened again to bring the stamping back as the focal image.

WP_20140223_007

The others are stamped using watercolours; one onto dry and one onto wet.  Great effects and fun to do. I then overstamped in black ink once dry.

WP_20140223_005

I love these and I hope you do too.

See you again with something else.
