ABC B is for Butterfly

Over at ABC today our challenge t0 you is B for Butterfly.

ABC B Butterfly

We are sponsored by Bunny Zoe with 1 £10 gift certificate for her store.

My papers are from Basic Grey’s Sugared, at least I think that was the pad. I am afraid I pulled them out a long time ago and didn’t think to label them on the back but I know they are BG because of the quality of the paper, which is actually more like cardstock.

The mats were some crinkly pink paper I had in my stash. I didn’t have enough to do all the mats so I gutted the large 8x8 piece to make the smaller  mat and then did the same again to make the mat behind the image! No wonder I have a paper mountain if I make one sheet cover three things!

B Butterfly Image

The butterfly image is a Kanban stamp, and I stamped it again and cut out the butterflies to add to the top and give some dimension. The ribbon and pearls were from my stash, although the pearls were white and I coloured them with my copics, but also the ribbon was white coloured with distress inks. The flowers I used a versamark pen on the edges of the petals and the centre of the flowers so I could emboss with the same sparkly pink WOW powder that I embossed the image with.
