When I was shopping in our local bits of everything shop recently I spotted a pack of grey board, die cut butterflies, about 25 of them I think, in assorted sizes for 40 pence, a bargain I couldn't resist. I chose these two for my card and embossed them with a Craft Concepts EF called Budding Vine, and the spayed them liberally with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Juneberry Wine. I the rubbed on some silver wax to highlight the high spots. For the back
ground panels I riffled trough the snippets box and found a piece of the pretty butterfly paper and the purple, inky piece which is the result of some long forgotten play session, so I am sorry but I have no idea what products I used, but judging by the colour it could have been the same glimmer spray and it has a bit of silver in it too. I trimmed both these pieces to make the panels and matted them onto silver mirri card. I stuck these to a 5" x 7" white base card and then added the butterflies mounting them on thin foam pads and adding some purple gems to their bodies. The sentiment is a Chocolate Baroque stamp inked with Seedless Preserves DI onto an offcut of the patterned paper and matted onto silver.
I am entering this card at The Butterfly Challenge - Butterfly + E for Embossing. and as the two panels were snippets I am also taking it to Pixies Snippets Playground - Use Snippets.
Thank you for visiting here today and for you comments which are all really appreciated.
I hope to be back soon.
