Flowers and Butterflies (posted by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have been working with one of the new individual cling mounted stamps currently available on the website, Butterfly Dress. The image is full of my favourite things, flowers and butterflies, and I had great fun creating this card.

I stamped the flower edge from the Floral Edges clear stamp set across the bottom of the piece of smooth white card. I needed to stamp the image twice to fill the space. I stamped the image again onto a piece of spare card a couple of times, so that I could colour some extra flowers to decoupage onto the original image. I stamped the Butterfly Dress image above the flower border, and cut a mask of the image and covered it over. I used a cloud stencil and Memento Summer Sky to create clouds across the background. I stamped the Butterfly Dress image twice more onto a piece of spare card so that I could decoupage the butterflies.

I coloured all of the images with pencils, and cut out the extra flowers and butterflies before adding them to the card. Finally, I added a layer of green card to correspond with the grassy green of the lady's skirt and the grass of the border.


Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  2. A real stunner this one - I particularly like your contrasts with the black & the minimal touch of green which brings out the pinks & oranges (good old colour theory😉). The sky is beautifully effective & your seamless border a real joy to see. Your arrangement of the butterflies adds super flow & movement to the focal image, really a joy to look at.

  8. That floral edge is the perfect match with this new stamp and how pretty it all looks together! I love the fluffy clouds in the sky and the lovely layering of the flowers and butterflies and then the extra butterflies randomly placed. The pink and gold goes beautifully with her golden hair and the added green at the bottom of the skirt and on the underneath layer tones in but also brings out the other colours too. A gorgeous card Judith. x
