brown and blue butterflies.... (by Miranda)

Hello there,

Today another one with the Crafty Individuals...( CI1333)and some swirls of the Artistic Expressions. This time with brown and blue shades. I find that always a beautiful combination.
Again I've used the acrylic bloc technique. The image is stamped on kraft paper and shaded with brown and white pencils. The butterflies are decoupaged and also coloured with pencils. The big butterfly is a die from Cheery Lynn and cut from metal foil. Than treated with some dabber's to make it look less shiny. Just added some pearls and voila!

Creative greetz,


  1. Beautiful and lovely Miranda. Love the colors brown and blue together. Marvelous.
    Lovely greet and nice weekend

  2. Very beautiful, such a lovely colour combination & the diecut butterfly is very pretty.

  3. Very striking indeed & I love the way you have used white & blue pencils for highlighting the details of the CI stamp.

  4. Definitely a lovely combination - pale blue and the milk chocolate that you have chosen. I want to try some high-lights with pencils and have quite a few butterflies to experiment with. Thanks for the ideas.

  5. Gorgeous card Miranda ! The butterfly on foil is so effective. Love browns & pale blues together and also the way you highlight with pencils. I ordered the CB Artistic Expressions stamps they are so beautiful. Have a great weekend,

  6. Miranda that a beautiful as usual and love the colours and shading. Suexxx
