I don't know if he felt guilty for spending Friday evening at the rugby, followed by a visit to the pub, but Alan offered to drive me to Exeter yesterday for the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycraft Show. I actually enjoyed Friday evening at home alone crafting, but who was I to refuse such an offer! He sat outside reading his paper and drinking coffee, so there were no comments of "what do you need that for?" while I was shopping. I found a little die I'd been looking for next to this lovely butterfly die which cuts out lots of little butterflies.....so it sort of fell into my basket too! I decided to use it today to make a card for my second entry on the Butterfly Challenge blog.
To make the different shades of butterflies on the left, I coloured a piece of white card with Pumpkin, Terracotta and Walnut Promarkers and put it behind the die cut. The butterfly on the right was punched with a Tonic punch, which punches out the butterfly wings and leaves them attached to the card. I backed the butterfly with a snippet of orange card and decorated it with pale brown pearls. Everything was then attached with foam pads onto a brown card blank.
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
