Beautiful butterflies (by Rachel)

Hello there! Rachel here with you today sharing some cards I made for the October show.
In this first card I used the Butterfly-daisy-collage stamp set  and some distress oxide inks. I created a full A4 page in the inks and then cut off my favourite portion to make the background. I then did some stamping and fussy cut the images on the remainder and then added them to the background. The sentiment came from a different stamp set. 

I went more traditional with the second card stamping the thistle-butterfly image onto white card and then colouring in in pencil. I then die cut the image and added it to a card I had coloured in distress inks.

I hope this has given you some ideas of ways to use these beautiful stamps!
