Butterfly Lullaby

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been? It is quite a relief to be nearly at the weekend. I had a delivery of some craft storage today, we ordered it at Ally Pally,  we have waited quite a while for it. The hall is full, it all needs making up some time and then I will have to sort out my crafty mess. I wonder what I am going to find when I do.

While I was waiting for the storage to be delivered I had a play with some butterfly stamps and my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.


The stamp was designed by Sheena Douglass and came free with Issue 9 of Crafter's Inspiration by Crafter's Companion. 


The butterflies were stamped onto watercolour card with Archival ink and then they were coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I blended the colours with some water and a fine paint brush. I cut the butterflies out by hand but I didn't cut the antennae. I decided where to place the butterflies on the background and then I stamped the butterflies on the backing paper and stuck the coloured butterflies over them. 


The sentiment came from the Festive Butterflies stamp set by Crafter's Companion. I am not sure what it means but it seemed to go with the card. 


I enjoyed making this card the butterflies really lent themselves to being coloured with the sparkle pens. 


I hope you have a great evening. The weekend it nearly here!

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  3. Beautiful array of butterflies. I really must get my sparkle pens out. They still have the yellow bands on them !! Like the idea if stamping the whole butterfly first to get the antenna on the cardstock. Hugs Mrs A.
