A FLUTTER OF BUTTERFLIES & CARD WINNER

Morning bloggers....

When I was sorting card stock I came across these pretty multicoloured papers.  I knew I had them just couldn't find them, no wonder when they're sandwiched between card



All I had to do was cut the paper to size, then pick 4 butterflies from my 'butterfly box', they are nearly all white as I can then colour them to suit the card I'm making

I used distress inks, the mini cube ones, and just gently ran the ink pad across each butterfly.  No pressure as I wanted a delicate look plus it also meant that not all the card was coloured and I also like that effect too

I stamped the sentiment with a Memento 'London Fog' ink pad, I wanted to keep the softer look and black would be too harsh for this card

For the centre I cut more of the pastel paper and stamped the mini butterflies and a sentiment still using the Memento ink pad

To complete the card I added flat back pearls along the spines of the butterflies
