Thanks for all your lovely comments.
I have been playing round with using sketches, and, whilst I was doing so, I created a lovely card I would like to share with you. It a sort of developed from the sketch and took it beyond.
I rather like the idea of the butterfly burst and might use it to finish off a small canvas, I started a while ago.
I used some pretty digital papers from All About Scrapping to stamp on. These have a perfectly plain but textured and shaded look, just perfect for stamping on, you can find them here. The beautiful butterflies and sentiments are all from one set called Artful Flutters by STAMPlorations, and you can find it here. I combined it with my favourite Mini Stamp from Lavinia Stamps, found here, which I used to create the starry background.
For this card I used some simple and effective stamping and fuzzy cutting of the butterflies, blended the edges of my paper with brown ink and adhered it to my base card. I slightly blended the cut-out butterflies with brown ink and off-set two of them when I attached them over the ones I had stamped on my purpely paper. To finish I simply added some dark pink gems.
Have a lovely weekend everybody and
Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
