Butterflies and Birds by Penny

Good morning everyone I hope you're all happy and well.  I'm here with my first post this month featuring a couple of my samples from last month's shows.  

Golden Birdsong.

 For this card I have used the Doodle Birds, Edgy Edges and Rustic Fragments stamp sets, Versafine Clair ink, Distress inks, Versamark ink and gold EP.  

On a white base card I stamped a couple of images randomly in different colours of DIs, then added one of the texture images over the top.  

On separate card I stamped a border image in blue ink, when that was dry I stamped a bird on each border with Versafine ink and embossed them with gold EP.  I trimmed each border, edged them with gold pen then attached them with 3D tape to the front of the card.  On another piece of white card I stamped and embossed a butterfly image, cut it out and attached it to the card. 

Inspirational Garden.


For this project I have used stamps from the Doodle Butterfly  Doodle Birds and Edgy Edges sets, Distress inks, Versamark ink, Versafine Clare inks, white EP, and gold pen.

I stamped several floral images and a butterfly onto Kraft card withVersamark ink and embossed them with white EP.  I watercoloured the images with DIs and added gold pen around the edges of the panel.  I then stamped the border image onto a spare piece of Kraft card and painted some of the leaves before edging with gold pen.  On another piece of Kraft card I stamped a couple of solid floral images randomly over the card creating a background panel, and edged it with gold pen as before. 

On an ivory base card I stamped two of the worker images around the edges to create a border.  I attached the focal panel to the background then wrapped the border around both panels before attaching them to the base card.  I stamped and embossed a sentement on a strip of Kraft card, then attached it to the card.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope that I have tickled your crafty taste buds!  I'll be back later this month with another post, until then stay well and take care,

  1. Pretty cards and I like really like the gold against the blue x

  2. Two beautiful layered cards Penny and love the two panels with the gold embossed birds on, and I love the flowers and butterfly as the central image and with the little dragonflies all around the edges, and both with such great colours. x
