Pretty in Pink by Brenda

Good morning, Brenda here and it's my pleasure to welcome you to our first post of November. This month myself and the Design Team are showcasing some beautiful Butterfly stamp sets which Lesley launched on Hochanda TV in October.

For my card at the top I used two stamps from Butterfly Daisy Collage, stamping onto a piece of watercolour card lightly coloured with Distress Inks, stamping the first to the left and then lining up the harlequins using a second stamp from the set. I stamped the Butterfly again along with several of the flowers onto a piece of card coloured with the same pink DI, cut out and decoupaged.

I am always rather partial to a floral wreath so used several of the stamps from Harebell ButterflyBrier Rose Butterfly stamping round a circle mask and using Distress Oxide inks, added a little shading around the circle and stamped Artistic Affirmations centrally, inking the stamp with Distress Markers.

And finally a DL card next inking the stamp from Thistle Butterfly with Distress Markers dragging the colour out a little, then stamping the large Butterfly a second time and adding a quote from Patchwork Butterfly and finally adding some background interest with a stencil and DI's. 

My thanks as always for popping in today.

  4. Love all your makes today, but the collage is stunning!

  5. These flowers with butterflies stamp sets are all gorgeous and love what you did with the wreath and the pretty bouquet of flowers Brenda, and then the butterfly daisy collage with the beautiful pink flowers and butterfly which works perfectly against the black harlequin design in the background and love the sweet ivy leaves too. x

  6. Three beautiful cards Brenda. The first one is gorgeous and I love how you’ve decoupaged the butterfly and flowers as this gives your card great dimension. I also love the third card with its delicate stamping and beautiful colour palette x
