butterflies and initials

 I loved the butterfly stamps that were featured on the November tv show -apart from anyhting else, it was an excuse to get the brusho powders out! I created two sheets of fairly random colours using the brusho, abnd then stamped the butterflies several times when dry using black versafine ink. I fussy cut the betterlooking butterflies out, and used them to add to the stamped images..
Backgrounds were a mixture of sponged colour and inks sprayed with water and picked up from a mat. I used distress oxide inks in squeezed lemonade and hickory smoke, ading stmaped butterflies in smoke between the sponged and mopped layers for the first card.

The second card background was stamped with sentiments from the harmony tree and rememberance tree stamps in smoke ink and the splodges from the butterfly set before sponging with the smoke and lemonade inks.

The show also featured some initial stamps, rather different from previous designs, which were fun to work with.
I went for simple this time, with a very light brusho background for the first card after the image was stamped and embossed.

The trees were coloured with brusho powder, and I used the word definition stamp to create the background


  1. Beautiful cards Veronica and love the butterflies on those soft smoky yellow backgrounds, and then the brushos behind the pretty initial stamps and the definition stamp works well as a background frame on the last. x

  2. Beautiful cards, and just LOVE your brushos colourful butterflies!
