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 would like to enter Challenge 19 at Jade's Sparkling Butterflies, Challenge 15 at The Crafty Addicts, TTCRD Challenge 17th to 23rd May, Challenge 119 at Crafting from the Heart and Challenge 312 at Craft Your Passion.
I hope you have a great evening. The weekend it nearly here!
