Honeysuckle Butterfly and Turtle Doves - By Florence

Hi everyone

Today I would like to share two card that I made using the fantastic Honeysuckle Butterfly Set and the beautiful Turtle Doves Set.

To make my card, I dapped some Distress Ink onto a plain old plastic file wallet, spritzed it with water and swished a piece of white coated card stock over it.
I then stamped the leaf pattern using Hydrangea and Plum colored Archival Ink.
I stamped the sentiment "With Love" using one of the stamps from the Mackintosh Sentiments set.
I stamped the little butterflies onto white coated card stock and colored them in with felt pens and added some little wires.
I made up the card as seen adding a small piece of plasters tape and attaching the butterflies with foam tabs.

I made this card in exactly the same way as mentioned above but this time just adding a die cut with  "Thanks for being a True Friend" stamped onto it and a few gems.  The sentiment is from the Mackintosh Sentiments Set.

This was such a quick card.  
I stamped the Partridge in a Pear Tree image onto white Coated Card Stock and colored the partridge and pears with a damp paint brush and felt pens.  I fussy cut the image and then added some diamond glaze over the pears.

I then assembled the card as seen using a die cut snowflake boarder, a piece of my own two tone backing paper and a strip of bling down the edge. I used foam tabs to attach the tree to make it 3D.

Have a wonderful weekend.  
I hope you have time to fit in some crafting. 

Thank you for looking

  6. Love that purple butterfly card. Ticks all the right boxes for me.

  7. I am trying to catch up as I've been a little rough but so very excited when I saw these beautiful creations. All of them are wonderful and I can't pick a favourite - fabulous stamping and colouring as usual from Florence - so inspiring! Karen x

  8. My favourite is the first one with the way your plasterer's tape adds texture & that hint of the boxy Mackintosh style of the stamped sentiment, not to mention the way the webbing of the butterflies' wings is echoed. In your Christmas sample the combination of blue & red is made particularly striking by your glossy pears & I like the white on white snowflake edging.

  9. Beautiful cards again! Great way to use the tape on the first! The butterflies are beautiful as is the little piese of lighter coloured card arround the tree on the third!
