I'm not sitting at home crafting my week off away but I am a bit of a home bod so it's a bit mixed some time at home some time exploring the area. This little card has been made with some of my favourite things.
I love butterflies, here a Crafty Individual stamp used first and then masked. The same stamp used twice more once on pre-printed paper and finally on self coloured paper. These butterflies carefully cut out and set aside. Rogue Redhead Background over-stamped the masked image and with the mask in place distress inks brushed over. The CI image lightly touched with sakura pens and the decoupage images layered on top. More butterflies from my collection of stamps stamped onto the green self coloured paper and the sentiment stamped onto cream paper and embossed with gold EP. One of my trademarks seems to be a strip of ribbon or gems down the left hand side, on here I've used both.
My favourite 'bits' Green, Butterflies, Crafty Individuals, Rogue Redhead, distress inks and a dash of citrus contrast colour.
Challenges to share my card with.
