Flutterbys



First of all thank you for all your kind wishes and thoughts, it seems like a never ending saga taking over normal life and the scheduled posts continue as I am now hospital having Sestamibi scans ahead of the op.

Our Tracy Mouse has chosen the theme of Butterflies at Allsorts this week where our sponsors are Nicecrane Designs and DigiStamp Boutique. I am thinking this will be a popular one as most of us love our Flutterbys. I have come up with two cards, the one at the top using the TH Cabinet die, lots of inking, grunge paste, stencilling and Nicecrane Butterfly Twinchies.


And another of Nicecrane's new designs called French Vintage Postcards which I printed out twice so that I could decoupage the butterflies.

Happy weekend to you all.

Gerrina said...

Your first card is so stunning! Love the way you used the honeycomb to combine it all and the butterflies look so delicate... The colourcombi on the second one is one to remember; works great! Hugs, Gerrina

Beautiful cards with gorgeous butterfly images;-))m

Paula (PEP) said...

It's your first which catches my attention with the way you have so much texture & movement incorporated into the background collage yet the focal butterflies remain prominent. The little cameo button holding the sentiment is a real delight. In the second it's the way your brown ribbon echoes the brown edging of the butterflies' wings & how you have imitated that again with your pairing of the two ribbons for the horizontal strip.
Thinking of you
