Elegance of Butterflies

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all this morning? What are you planning on doing today?

Me, I have stamped up a fair few images (Tatty Twinkles) and plan to spend the day colouring in.
I have some Admin to do first though.

Here is another card using one of the new Celtic Dreams Dies, this is called Elegance.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 square white card.
2. First layer is white pearlescent card embossed using Tattered Lace Chains Embossing Folder, I wrapped pink organza ribbon around before layering onto base card.
3. I cut out SB Grande Circle die using Black glossy Card.
4. On a sheet of pearlescent card I colour washed with Inkadinks Candy Floss, Cranberry Sorbet and Mango. Once this was dry I die cut the die, with the excess of the card I cut out the butterflies again and brayered Sparkle Medium soft pink. Once dry I adhered over the butterflies for dimension.
5. To finish off I added pink pearl flat back gems to the embossed card.

Many thanks for visiting Today
