Cards and other handicrafts made by Jean Straw

Anyway all this meant that I didn't get round to making my card until today. The base card is approximately 15cm square, tent style. I took a piece of white card little smaller and using a Clarity stencil and distress inks I added colour with a duster brush. The colours are Iced Spruce, Broken China, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire. All the stamping is done with Archival Watering Can ink. The main image and the sentiment are Chocolate Baroque stamps, the small stamps are Cardio, and the tiny snowflakes are part of an Art Journey stamp. I used a white pigment pen and white Wink of Stella to add snowy highlights. I outlined the the large circle with Stickles Stardust glitter, and also added some touches to the images and snow flakes. I cut some blue card just slightly smaller than the card front and stuck the stamped panel to it before fixing to the card. I punched three snowflakes from glitter card using an X-cut punch and fixed them to the top corner.
I'm afraid this is not a very good photo, and I think the card looks prettier IRL, I just can't find the best place to take the pictures lately. It would be easy to blame the camera but I expect it is more likely an operator problem.
Now I am off to link up with The Rudolph Day Challenge - Anything Christmas.

where the theme is M for Matching Pairs and/or O for the Colour of Orange Peel I have used the orange colour and although my butterflies aren't identical twins I think they may qualify as a matching pair. Thanks for heads up Kate.
