Ironically I had just done a card for Lexi and I had chosen a butterfly for that one. Perhaps I should have tried a sneaky and combined two DT challenges in one post! But as I love butterflies I have made a nice fresh card for this challenge.
My image, sentiment and indeed BP are all from Elusive Images, the paper being part of the Graphicus Guild welcome pack.
For the image I started with a blank sheet of card and ink dusted some Big N Juicy Inks onto it. I then stamped the gorgeous and huge (6”) butterfly onto my ink dusted background with versamark and then embossed it with Sheena’s Wow sparkle powder in purple. I distressed the edges of the card with a pair of scissors and embossed them with a combination of the purple Wow powders and a sparkly blue (the same two colours I used on the sentiment stamp). The lace ribbon I dyed with the same Inkpad using both the pinky/purple and blue/green shades.
The flower is from HOTP, lovely organza petals layered up to make a flower and the centre is actually a snowflake brad, but who would know, well you all do now, lol, cos I told you. All the swirly/branch embellishments are cut with various Marianne dies.
