Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge the last couple of times and was determined get one done for the latest challenge which started yesterday, where the theme is Summertime Butterflies.
All of the stamps used here are Chocolate Baroque apart from the tiny birthday greeting which is from Stamp Tapestry. I stamped the Harebell Butterfly with Archival black ink and coloured it with ColourSoft pencils using Sansodor and a paper stump to blend the colours. I stamped the butterfly again and the smaller one on a snippet of white card and coloured them the same way before fussy cutting. I used some bright blue and dark orange card to make a double mount before adding the cut out butterflies. I used silicon glue for the larger one to lift the wings slightly. My base card is a white 5" x 7" and I used a stamp from the CB Harlequin Fragments set and stamped it twice with Tumbled Glass DI, and the small sentiment stamp which says, This joy you feel is life, stamped with Memento London Fog randomly in the spaces. I then fixed the image panel on top and added the happy birthday also with the London Fog ink.
I used a couple of little snippets here so I am hopping over to Pixies Playground to show the other playmates too.
Thank you for taking a look, I really appreciate the comments you leave.
