Hello everyone, I have two cards to share with you today, using a couple of old favourite stamp sets; Butterfly Dreams and Loving Sentiments. These two stamp sets contain stamps that I like to use time and time again, and they have been faithful friends over the years. I have chosen to use a couple of the smaller stamps to create backgrounds, using Pan Pastels to colour my card first, and then stamp the images over the top. This always seems to give a lovely crisp impression.
For my first card, I have used some linen textured card, and shades of green and purple to colour the background, before stamping the leaf image using olive and plum over the top. I coloured a smaller piece of card in the same way, and stamped a sentiment over the top. I added burgundy card as a matting layer for the linen card.
I chose a piece of smooth card to colour with the purple shades of Pan Pastel, and then stamped a butterfly from the stamp set over the top. I cut the image out, and added some flower stamens to replace the antennae.
I coloured another smaller piece of card with the turquoise Pan Pastel as before, and stamped a sentiment. I added a few flat-backed gems to finish.
