Flutter By

Hello all, first of all I need to apologies for the brief post today, unfortunately we've been very poorly in our house hold this week and it's knocked me for six.
*This post is part of the February promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
First of all I used the Butterfly Delight Stencil from Imagination Craft, and stencilled it with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Then used an acrylic block to create some inky shapes again using Antique Linen and Pumice Stone
I took some coordination card stock in two tones of brown and matted them behind inked card which was matted onto black card.  I stamped the Hobby Art Butterflies using Versamark and Wow black embossing powder onto the background pattern before matting them all onto a 7 x7 card.  Again using some butterflies from the Hobby Art butterflies stamp set, I finished off the card with a few random butterflies and also stamped a couple of images from the Hobby Art decorative background set.
Once again I've very sorry this is short and sweet, see you again in March. 
Thanks for dropping by
Love Jan xx


  1. Firstly, get well soon. The card is beautiful and shows off the class technique perfectly.

  5. Oh dear I do hope you all feel better soon - it's awful when the whole house is ill, you have my sympathies.
    A beautiful card, love the idea of using the stencil and then stamping over it and colouring it with the acrylic block technique - brilliant idea! Thank you so much for the inspiration and the competition too Karen x
