Butterfly With Love (by Anne)

Good morning. This was one of my samples for the recent butterfly stamp shows on Hochanda with Lesley Wharton and Chocolate Baroque.

How to make it:
  1. Create the background by partially stamping the decorative floral panel into the corners of the card using Tumbled glass Distress Ink, turning the card 90 degrees between stamping.
  2. Stamp the butterfly, sentiment and swirls with Versafine ink. Colour with sparkle brush pens and ‘doodle’ around the stamped swirls with gold brush pen.
  3. Using the fine tipped blue sparkle pen add more ‘doodling’ to the lower left hand side of the background.
  4. Edge the topper with Black Soot Distress ink and the alcohol marker. Glue to card front and add faux stitching with the fine tipped black pen.
  5. Add Stickles around the topper edge, the butterfly and over the swirls. Finish with PVA pearls.


  1. Such lovely colours this really pops xx

  2. Amazing and so sweet background for this lovely butterfly!! Beautiful colours combo!

  3. I would not have thought of stamping the panel like that. It's a lovely card. Thank you for sharing
    X Chris

  4. Stunning card Anne, I love the butterly and the gorgeous colours, Kate x

  5. The four colours mixed and matched together give a lovely harmonious feel to this card Anne and the black blended round the edges brings your eye in to that beautifully coloured butterfly, and the swirls look really pretty framing it. x
