How is your weekend going? Some of us have an extra day to look forward to and others of us have a whole week of half term coming. Yesterday we visited both sets of parents. Today our daughter and her fiancé are coming to stay so we can all celebrate her birthday tomorrow. It should be lots of fun it is always nice to see them.
I have been playing with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens again I just can't resist getting them out to play with and that Sheena Douglass butterfly stamp is so gorgeous.
I used three different embossing folders to make this card. I used the free one from the magazine again as it is easy to cut an aperture in the card before it is embossed. Then I can use the die that I used for the aperture as the centre on a frame for the same aperture. The background embossing folder is an older one by Creative Expressions. The fussy ribbon was in my stash it looks a bit like a skirt.
For the background to the aperture I used a Floral embossing folder by Crafter's Companion I used white Centura Pearl card and I coloured the raised areas with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. The butterflies were stamped with black archival ink onto water colour card and coloured with the Sparkle pens and some water and a brush. The butterflies were cut out by hand.
The sentiment was cut from a page of sentiments and mounted onto purple card.
Here are our furry house guests they are quite sweet and I think they enjoy being here.
I would like to enter Challenge 55 at the Butterfly Challenge blog.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
