Butterfly Easel Card

The theme this fortnight for the Butterfly Challenge is 'Butterflies + S is for Stamping and/or Sapphire'.  The challenge closes later today, so I'm sneaking in a last minute entry.

I'm not sure the shade of blue counts as 'sapphire', although the tips of the butterfly are sapphire, but there is definitely stamping!  I used my favourite butterfly stamp, 'Zen Butterfly' by Lavinia.  It was stamped with a black Memento ink pad and coloured with three shades of blue Promarkers.  The whole butterfly was covered with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.  I used Memory Box 'Stitched Rectangles' to die cut the image.   The blue background was embossing with a Spellbinders 'Dainty Dots' embossing folder and shows up more IRL, so I resisted the temptation to add any more embellishments.  I punched a border from a snippet of white card, which was attached with foam tape, enabling the main part of the card to stand up.  Two white flower brads and a sentiment finished off my card.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:


  1. Love the butterfly,this is gorgeous.xxx

  2. A lovely easel Liz. I love the way you've coloured that super butterfly. Barb. xx

  3. Just fluttered in in time. I love the way the beautiful butterfly is the focal point here on your easel. I also love the colours (I'm sure one of them is Sapphire!)
    It is good to see you over at the Butterfly Challenge.

  4. I don't know whether that is sapphire blue, but it certainly is a beautiful card. Cara x

  5. A lovely easel card which sets your butterfly off perfectly. I love the shades of blue and as you have used the colour and stamping your card will be entered twice. Thankyou for fluttering by. It looks like quite a few have fluttered in at the last minute and taken me by surprise.
