The challenge on the Butterfly Challenge Blog this week is 'Paper Pieced Butterflies'. After looking through all my butterfly stamps and punches, I decided to use the lovely Lavinia 'Zen Butterfly' stamp.
I first stamped the image on a snippet of white card, then again on two contrasting oddments of Papermania patterned paper. I cut out the top wings from one of the patterned pieces and the bottom wings from the other. I then attached them over the original stamped image. The body was coloured in with a purple Wink of Stella Glitter pen. I found a VERY old butterfly corner punch, which I used for the purple piece of card. It pays sometimes to tidy my craft room, as I discover things I'd forgotten about! The matted image was attached with foam pads, as it made the corner butterflies stand out. The dainty embossed background is one of my favourites.
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
I'll be popping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground when the gates open tomorrow, as I used lots of snippets on my card.
