The stamp is from Chocolate Baroque set Punky Romance and I stamped it directly onto a folded white square card with Memento Black Tuxedo ink.I used several shades of grey Coloursoft pencils for the shading and a black pencil and black fine line pen to emphasise the leaves and swirls.The flowers were coloured with a red distress marker and I used a red glitter gel pen on the butterflies. It doesn't really show in the photo but the main butterfly is decoupaged with the wings slightly raised with silicon glue.To finish the card I added the red and black ribbon to the folded edge and stuck some black gems in the flower centres and stamped the birthday greeting in the top corner. I am quite pleased with this and enjoyed making it especially as I have been lacking in motivation lately.
