I don't usually post twice in one day, but I suddenly remembered that the Butterfly Challenge closes today, and not next Tuesday, and I hadn't made a card for the challenge. The main reason for this is the theme is 'Butterflies + M is for Matching pairs and/or the colour of Orange peel' and I'd been putting off making a card. Firstly, I seldom use orange on my cards. Don't ask me why, but I didn't ever use orange on my classroom displays when I was teaching full time either. Secondly, I usually add things in odd numbers, so adding two of something made me put on my thinking cap. So, this afternoon I got out some snippets of orange card and some orange Promarkers and set to work.
The image is an old wood mounted Francoise Read stamp, 'Glasgow Butterfly', which I stamped with Momento 'Tuxedo Black' and coloured with Promarkers. All the stitched dies I used are from The Works. The layered image is attached with foam tape to add dimension. I used a Creative Expression embossing folder, 'Checkpoint' for the background. I didn't have any orange pearls, so I coloured two white ones with one of the orange Promarkers I used - so that's my matching pair.
