Butterflies and Spring!

Morning Everyone! I am posting early this morning as I have just been woken up with a delivery at my door and there is so much noise going on in my street I had no hope in going back to sleep, so thought I might as well sit here and post this little card that I made, yes, late last night. After washing what seemed like hundreds of towels that we used when the storm happened on Sunday, I had put them through the dryer and so had to wait until the cycle had finished to be able to go to bed, even though I was very tired I made a card whilst I was waiting …………LOL. Between you and me I think that I will be having a nap before heading to work today………LOL.

So today’s card I started with brown card stock for the card, I then stamped Hero Arts, Raindrop Background stamp with Versamark Ink over the top and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next I cut a Spellbinders, Label 1 Die Cut and stamped a Hero Arts, Artistic Borders, Corner Flower onto one of the corners of the die cut, I coloured the image in with my Copics (see photo below for what Copics I used), I blended some Ranger, Distress Ink, Antique Linen over the die cut and set aside to dry. Onto a scratch piece of white card stock I stamped the image again and this time coloured only the flower in, I cut the flower out and mounted it over the top of the stamped flower on the die cut with some dimensionals, I added some Ranger, Inkessentials, Glossy Accents to the edges of the flower. Next I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings in the opposite corner to the flower, I punched some little butterflies out of some watermelon card stock with a Martha Stewart Punch, Classic Butterfly 3 and adhered them to the centre of the die cut. Lastly, I added some black stitching around the edge of the die cut, added some pearls to the centre of the flower as well as the little butterflies and corner rounded the corners of the card.

Here is a photo of the Copics used.

I hope you like what you see today.

Have a great day everyone. I will catch you all tomorrow.
