Kaleidoscope of Spring Butterflies by Brenda

Morning to you all, the final collection of samples from last month's Hochand shows. 

A Brusho background with a die cut trellis as a base for a kaleidoscope of Butterflies using Butterfly Blush, silhouette stamps are a favourite with me so these Butterflies tick all the right boxes and I make no excuse they are coming up again in the card below.

I used Versafine Clair inks and kiss stamped the Butterflies onto various CB backgroind stamps and fixed into place over he trellis.

For this one I used the circles from Strip Stencil set using DI's to shade the edges then with the stencil still in place stamped worker stamps from Eastern Grasses and Fresh Florals and placed a butterfly over each using the same set and kiss technique as the card above.

Thistle Butterfly takes centre stage in my final card stamped using Distress Markers direct to stamp onto a panel created by masking, inking and stencilling then dragging some of the colour from the image.

Thanks for your visit and kind works of encouragement which are always appreciated.


  1. Three brilliant cards Brenda and I love the bright Brusho background with these beautiful kiss stamped butterflies added over the top. I love the look of the circles in a vertical configuration using some soft background ink blending and wonderful coordinated colour for then pretty kiss stamped butterflies, and lastly the masked and stencilled background works so well with the Thistle Butterfly stamp with just the ink dragged in to colour elegant! x

  2. OH! WOW! These are so beautiful and inspirational, love them all so much.

  3. Amazing works! They are all so striking!!! Love so much how you used the butterflies silhouette stamps with the kissing technique. I never think to use this way, thanks so much for the inspirations! The slimline card looks just delightful, it's my favourite!
