I missed a few challenges last week as I was unexpectedly working all week, but the Butterfly Challenge finishes today, so I got my skates on and made a card to sneak a card into the challenge before it closes. The theme is 'Butterflies + N is for Not Square and/or Navy'.
I started by die cutting a navy base card using a Presscut 'Scalloped Semi-Circle' die, although it looks more like black in the photo. The Lavinia butterfly stamp is coloured with three shades of yellow for the wings and two shades of blue for the body. The whole butterfly was then covered with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to make it sparkle. The image was matted and layered using Sue Wilson 'Pierced Pinpoint Circle' die cuts. I wanted to add a sentiment, but didn't want it to detract from the beautiful image. I drew a VERY faint line using one of the circle die, so I could position the white MB 'Uppercase Alphabet Soup' letters. I then erased the pencil line.
I am joining in the following challenges:
