Butterfly Moments

Hi everyone

     Today I would like to share with you a card I made - Yes, a card!!!

I don't make them very often at all  - I tend to get a bit stuck when making them, but this one was a dream to make....And today it is a card made with Nicecrane Designs images - I chose these beautiful butterfly images...

 I chose three butterflies with shades of blue and peach in their wings and this set the colour scheme...

First I dabbed some Weathered Wood and Picket Fence DP onto the craft mat and used a sponge to dab a mix of these paints onto a Tim Holtz Lattice Stencil. I then got some white card and pressed it down onto the stencil to get a reverse stencil print. 

When this was dry I covered the card with Weathered Wood, Tea Dye and Peacock Feathers DI.

I then stamped some text and script stamps using Weathered Wood DI and Potting Soil Archival ink

I stamped some butterfly and dragonfly images using Weathered Wood and Tea Dye DI

I stamped a butterfly quote onto white card, dabbed some Weathered Wood, Tea Dye and Peacock Feathers DI and edged it with Walnut Stain DI. I then layered it onto some more card covered with  Tea Dye DI

I cut the butterflies out and edged them with Walnut Stain very lightly - just to take away the white cut edges of the paper.

The antennae were too difficult to cut, so I replaced them with brown wire

So there is one of my (rare) cards....Hope you like it!

 Why not pop over to Nicecrane Designs and check out the images there...there are so many - Whatever your style of creating there will be something there you will LOVE! 

Happy Crafting!
