Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Hello butterfly..

Cherry set the Saturday Challenge over on the CMLI group on craft bubble and had a picture theme of a beautiful butterfly. I didn't want to use my usual gorgeous butterfly from Stampin Up so I used an uninked stamp (I know... who has uninked stamps!! ahem) from Kanban. The set also has 3 separate butterflies but they were too small to decoupage although they do match the 3 on the stamp.  I decided to use the certain celery colour as I had seen Clare use a similar colour on one of her cards and thought it looked so crisp and fresh.
I am really pleased with how it turned out, I used certain celery backing paper, elzybells (i think) sentiment and Stampin Up punches for the sentiment.

Scraps were the card the image is on (back of a card where a one layer image went horribly wrong) and the certain celery card stock so no new card/paper used for this one!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Craft your Passion - card for all occasions
Flutter By Wednesday - use scraps and a butterfly
Do You Stack Up - use your scraps
Secret Crafter Saturday - white and one other colour
Jules Snippet Challenge (missed the saturday deadline..ooops)

Tee hee!! I think you will find there are a few of us with un-inked stamped around blogland!!

Perhaps we are saving them so we have something new to play with in our retirement LOL!!!

Have a good weekend.
