Today I have a card that I made for a new Butterfly Challenge started by Mrs A, who is also one of the playmates at the Snippets Playground. For the first challenge she wants to see at least one butterfly and one flower on your creation. It is a fortnightly challenge starting on a Wednesday and the first one finishes on this coming Tuesday evening and a new one starting on Wednesday.So if you like using butterflies in your artwork why not pop over and take a look.
I stamped this Chocolate Baroque image onto white card with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, and coloured it with Promarkers. I shaded in the background very lightly with a duster brush and Broken China Distress Ink, and then cut it out. I used a piece of navy card to mount it and fixed it to the white A6 base card.I stamped and coloured the two butterflies again and cut them out, and then fixed them over the original ones with silicon glue to lift the wings a little. I used Cinnamon coloured Stickles to add a bit of sparkle to the flower centres. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Chocolate Baroque Amazing Birthday set with the Rhubarb Stalk ink. As I didn't have anyone in particular in mind when making this I chose this sentiment as it makes usable for several different occasions.
All of the image stamping was done on snippets of card and the navy mount was also a snippet so I am off to the Snippets Playground with it as well.
Thank you for taking a look and to those of you who leave comments, they are really appreciated.
