Yes, that's right! That's the new challenge theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges ;) and it's right up my street as I looooove butterflies!!! I suppose you'd never know if I didn't tell ya... lol ;)))
As always, our lovely Marina from Cottage Crafts has prepared a fabulous prize for one lucky winner!
And here's my card for this challenge:
My card was also inspired by the January Muse CASE Study card (butterflies and colours):
I used my brand new Dahlia set from Stampendous and the papers are DCWV Mariposa pack. The flower was coloured with distress inks and oil pastels and then sprayed with gold cosmic shimmer mist. I stamped the flower three times and decoupaged it to add dimension.
The papers have been distressed with a generous amount of random border punching, tearing and inking... For more inspiration on this technique visit this fantastic blog by Finn, she is a truly inspirational artist!
The light background paper has got lovely glittery spots, (I love bling!) although they are a bit difficult to photograph...
I added some accents to the butterfly swirl with Liquid Pearls and also added some beads and gems to the butterflies' bodies - more bling! lol ;).
And can you see some more butterflies hiding in the corner? ;).
I hope you will join us for this challenge and you must have a look at the samples prepared by my Fashionable Sisters as they are simply outstanding this week!
Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for visiting!
Ps. In case you missed it yesterday - I have a short tutorial on how to add sharing buttons on Blogger which you can view here.
