I spent such a lovely day enjoying the sunshine and playing paper yesterday. My inspiration was some lovely images from Graphic’s Fairy of French butterflies. Well…I’m not sure if the butterflies are French…but the text on the image is! Wherever they come from I think they are beautiful : )
I used some favorite patterns from My Mind’s Eye and layered them with craft brown well inked paper.
To this card I added some ruffly ribbon trim, a nice large poofy bow, pretty leaf headed pins from Maya Road, a bit of twine and a lovely layered flower from Petaloo with glass glitter center. I should mention that the ribbon for the bow was inked to match with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink. The blending tool works great to get an even application.
I added a small “frame” pattern from Crate here and topped it off with a doily, and tag made from the scrap of the craft paper.
I used basically the same elements for this card…but arranged the differently. I also chose to add less poof with smaller embellishments.
I have one more butterfly image left…but I’m saving it for a special project : )
