Tropical Butterflies........

Morning all Happy Saturday.........

I thought that I would show you today another sample that I made for the class on the theme of butterflies and flowers.........

For this card I used the gorgeous Penny Black Slapstick stamp Breezy, now I have to say I love slapstick stamps as they stamp out so well and you never loose any of the high detail on them. I used Vintage Sepia Versafine ink pad and repeatedly stamped it on to a sheet of the Teresa Collins Paper pad ( I love this pad for stamping on as it has so many tiny designs on the papers ) and then embossed it with Wow Sparkle Powder.......

I used the Cheery Lynn Butterflies dies and used a little Tea Dye Distress Ink on the edges of the butterflies and then embossed them with the clear sparkle again. The tiny flowers were a punch from my stash and then I added a tiny dot of stickles in the centre of them.......

A little closer look at the sparkle.......

Well that is all from me for now, have a great weekend and I will be back soon......

Big hugs Lisa.B.xx

  1. Love that butterfly die x

  2. Stunning card! Love how you've coloured the edges of the butterfly wings. I'd never think of using these colours on a butterfly card, but it's beautiful! x

  3. Haven't seen the slapstick stamps, but I'll be looking now! Lovely card. Thank you, Jan

  4. I don't normally do brown shades but this is gorgeous Lisa and shows that stamps off beautifully! I love slapstick stamps because they take a lot less space and if I can make it look like I have less stamps than I do have then I'm a happy bunny and DH isn't any wiser lol! Thanks for sharing this beauty with us Karen x

  5. Slapstick is new to me too. Fab stamp, and your card is superb. The addition of those tiny flowers is very clever.

  6. Great card, really like the stamps and butterflies of course. x

  7. A lovely card. Love the monotone look and the butterfly die is gorgeous.

  8. Lovely design, really pretty. I like the use of the browns! x
