Nature Fragment with a Butterfly (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I have a card design today using the fantastic new Nature Fragment set along with a pretty butterfly from Butterfly Daisy Collage and sentiment from Birthday Words.


The background is watercolour paper that I used to 'mop up' inks from a previous card.    It's actually the watered down version of the Blue cards you saw last month :)   I spritzed a little water and added a little sea salt that created the spots.   When dry I stamped with the flourish fragment from Nature Fragments using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I embossed the Butterfly from Butterfly Daisy Collage with Silver, cut it out and attached.   When the card was finished I added stickles.   The matting and die cuts are in dark brown (hard to tell in the photo) and I stamped the greeting with brown Dye Ink.

Dies used:    Cheery Lynn- Cuties 1 B149 (border which can be made into a flower) and Mini Flourish One B170.



Thanks for your visit !
Shirley

  5. Super effect with the salt & I love the brown with those aqua & violet colours. The flourish with the butterfly makes it look as if he has a tail - almost swallowtail, like the exotic butterflies on nature programmes. The butterfly really glows.
