BUTTERFLIES R US

 Morning Everyone,

I am sharing a card made with a Penny Black stamp called Social Butterfly.  I've had this set for ages and never used it so thought it had better have an outing.


I used a cloud stencil with my favourite Stampin Up blue and stamped the butterflies where I wanted them to be.  Then I stamped them again onto watercolour card, coloured with my Zig markers and fussy cut them out.  As I'd already stamped them I didn't need to cut round the antennae, which is a good job as fussy cutting isn't my favourite thing to do, especially around fiddly bits.  They were then glued in place and the sentiment, which is from LOTV, added with foam tape.

I would like to enter:

Allsorts - Hand coloured or paper pieced image
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes with Option wings or tails
Passion for Markers - things with wings
Simon Says Weds - Anything Goes
Penny Black Saturday - Anything Goes
We Love Stamping - Stamping and stencils
Rabisco challenge - Anything Goes

I hope you have a good weekend. It looks as though it may be a sunny one here so I might be able to do a bit of clearing up in the garden.  Whatever you may be doing, thank you for visiting and have a good one.

I love butterflies and these are stunning Lynne. I too love to fussy cut, as I would not be happy with a white line around any image. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Big hugs, Carol S.xxxx
