I pulled out an older Stamp-It butterfly stamp and inked it up with Brilliance Twilight pigment ink ~ this is a beautiful shimmery ink in pink/purple/blue. I trimmed it with a Spellbinders die and then distressed while the die was still in place. I stamped the biggest butterfly again and fussy cut it and added for dimension. Added some pink pearls and matted it onto some wine coloured card that had been embossed with a butterfly folder ( not that you got to see this in the end) The BG paper is from Hot of the Press. I added a doily behind the butterfly panel and added a little purple double bow. As it seem quite busy, I decided to go with the sentiment inside ...
stamped the butterflies again inside with with the Mother's Day sentiment - also from Stamp-It. One of the ones I got when I went to their store in Perth. It's an older one that was on sale down from $17.95 to $6.00. With Mother's Day here in NZ on 13 May, it will be handy. I'm making some cards to sell at work.
I've started to tidy up ( a continually exercise in my craft space!) and came across a pile of stamped and punched butterflies in a orangey colour so can see another card in my mind... now to get finished tidying so I can get it made.
Hope you have a great weekend
