Blue Butterfly (by Doreen)

Hello to you all, I am back with another sample made from the new  
stamps that have just been released for July


This was made by first masking off some of my card before sponging with Faded Jeans Distress ink,then I inked up my stamp with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink and stamped over the top.
I then removed the masking tape and stamp the Birthday Words sentiment. I used a butterfly stamp from the Harebell Butterfly sheet and decoupaged this.

  5. Adore this card. I don't know why but putting the butterfly at the bottom gives it a whole new dimension.

  7. I think this fragment is probably my favourite, and the way it has been used here as a frame for the lovely sentiment, and with the added butterfly from the Harebell Butterfly set makes this a beautiful card. x

  8. I especially like the simple elegance of using only one colour with the white & the way that the sentiment panel has 'soft' edges created by your masking rather than using a separate panel of card stock. The decoupaged butterfly straddles the sentiment panel & extends beyond the perimeter of the background panel & mats beautifully. A really classy design.
