Flutterby friends.....

Hello,

I thank you for visiting with me and hope that you are well. I hope too that you are enjoying all this beautiful Spring weather, I am so happy to see the trees coming into leaf and to be able to open my windows at last!

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using one of the sweet Tilda's from Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams collection called Hello Little Butterfly.


I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads stamped onto 300gsm watercolour paper.

The background has been distressed with spun sugar and edged with walnut stain. I have used a pricking tool along the edge of my paper.

The tag and swirl are die cut using Magnolia's Doohickey dies and the butterflies are Martha Stewart punches.

The stickles I have added are Star Dust.


Thank you again for popping into see me and I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week.

This card will be on Ebay  later today if you are interested.


love

inks used
skin - tattered rose, antique linen
