Butterfly Spot challenge and Mrs. A. wants to see some yellow, as well as a butterfly of two of course. I started by stamping the postcard image from Inkylicious with rich cocoa Memento ink and colouring it with ColourSoft pencils. I then tore around it and added shading with Distress inks in old paper, antique linen, tea dye and vintage photo. I used pale yellow pearlescent card and Spellbinders Marvelous Squares for the die cuts. The backing paper is some that I was given and I trimmed it to fit the front of a 5.5" square card. It looks more green IRL but the weather is very dull here today and I couldn't get a very good representation of the colour. In the end I took this with a flash and it is the best I could manage. The paper was quite plain so I randomly stamped some script and a small swirl, with bundled sage Distress ink. The lace down the side is an ivory coloured rub down. I layered the squares and stamped image, and then cut the filigree butterfly from the same pearl card using a Memory Box die, and the solid one with the matching die from a snippet of coppery brown pearl card. This is mounted on the card with foam pads to add dimension, and has some tiny pearls on the body.
I am also entering this at Stamping Sensations - Use Punches Or Dies
Pixie's Snippets Playground - use up at least one snippet, mine is the base butterfly and I also used a snippet of card for the stamping.
