Hello there! I thought I'd pop in with a quick blog of my butterfly card from 20th November's Best of Clarity shows on Hochanda.
First, I blended distress paints on an A5 piece of stencil card. I think the colours I used were: candied apple, carved pumpkin, fossilised amber, lucky clover, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet. The good thing about using paint is that you get full coverage and vibrant colour really quickly and easily.
It took several trial runs on copy paper to work out the positioning of the butterflies before stamping them onto stencil card.
I then cut round the wings with a really sharp craft knife so that they could be folded up.
All that I needed to do then was to stick this in place on top of the coloured background.
Trim back and edge with a black sharpie pen before mounting onto a card blank.
Its a clean and simple design, but its very effective I think. I hope you like it too.
I can't believe that Barbara Gray is back on the TV on Sunday. My samples for that show are all boxed up ready for posting tomorrow and I'll be back on Thursday with my Claritystamp Challenge card for December! Going to be a busy few days!!! Till next time. Xxx
