Embellish it with Butterflies :)




Hello I wanted to quickly post this card.... I thought I had nearly missed the deadline for the wonderful colour challenge over at Embellishmagazine...



I love using my PTI stamps and when I do get the chance I generally find my cards are pretty quick to make using them... My card design is based on Mercy's fabulous sketch. I totally love building the background patterns, think the flower softens the argyle a touch. Ashley has sooo got me  into twine I think I have more varieties now then before the twine embellish issue... hahaha! The lighting is all off in my pictures... rushing to post you see!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Basic Grey: basics kraft; PTI: cardstock;
Stamps: Papertrey Ink: butterfly dreams; sweet pea; a little argyle; background woodgrain;
Ink: Archival: black; distress inks: frayed burlap, peeled paint, black soot;
Dies: PTI: butterfly;
Other: adhesive stones, twine; 3D adhesive foam;


Wanted to mention that my artwork was not selected for exhibition in the RA Summer Exhibition.. never mind :( I will have to try harder to create something better, something to totally blow their socks off next year... tee hee!
Managed to finish 33 images coloured using copics a commission for Claire, phew! and also wanted to give a link to the pretty bag in my previous post... so thanks for stopping by HuGs Kim :)
