ABC U Unlimited

Our challenge for ABC today is U for Unlimited, or Anything Goes. We are sponsored by Magnolia-licious and my lovely butterfly die is one of the ones that they stock in the Magnolia Doohickey range. I just love the shape of it and it’s also quite a nice large die.

U Unlimited main2

I embossed a stencil (sorry for the life of me cannot remember which one) onto white cardstock and then using twisted citron and spiced marmalade and squeezed lemonade I used distress inks through the stencil. I then diecut from this piece twice to make a base for my butterfly and a top layer so he could fly. I glittered around the edge of the top layer of the butterfly.


The embossed background is from Crafters Companion’s Downton Abbey range. The ribbon and citrus coloured gems are from my stash as is the lime patterned glitter card I used as a matt for my embossed area and sentiment, which I made on my pc. The ribbon also comes from my stash.
