Grungy Flutterflys



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and Susan would like to see Butterflies this week. Our sponsor is Stamp Addicts.

This was a fun card to make and created some weeks ago when crafting was still possible, to be honest I am going stir crazy being unable to craft because of the pain and just glad I have a backup of of cards to keep me going for a few weeks. 

I started with a piece of 600gsm Fabriano and lemon and lilac Brusho's which I dabbed as I added the water to keep the colours quite subtle. I took a Timmy sunray stencil and inked through with DI mustard seed and then covered with translucent stencil paste. The Butterfly border and individual Butterflies are all Tattered Lace and cloured with the same Brusho's. A sentiment which as per usual I am unable to identify as it's unmounted, some pearls and coordinating matting and layering.

I hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and see all of the lovely inspiration from my teamies.

  36. How lovely to make the sun's rays in a lavender shade, rather than keeping with warm colors, Brenda! It reminds me of a sunset or sunrise right in the middle of the day! It's a beautiful creation! hugs, de
