Butterfly Kisses

Hi there, welcome to my blog  :)  Today I am sharing one of my recent tv samples created with beautiful Chocolate Baroque stamps.  I have used the Butterfly Blush, Just Butterflies, Patchwork Butterfly and Tangled Peacock sets, the Butterfly stencils; Distress Inks, Mica powders, white gel pen, Versamark ink.

I created the background panel by blending Distress inks onto a piece of white card.  I then used DI through the stencil to position the butterflies.  I dotted around the three large butterflies with a white gel pen.

Next I stamped the large silhouette butterfly that matches the stencilled ones onto white card with Versamark ink then brushed Mica powders over the ink.  I then inked up a stamp from the Tangled Peacock set and kiss stamped the butterfly, removing some of the Mica powders to reveal the pattern.  I repeated this technique twice, once on white card and once on black.  I used hairspray to fix the powders then cut the butterflies out.  

I took a white base card and stamped one of the butterflies from the Just Butterflies set around the edges of the card with DI and blended some ink as well.  

I stamped the Irish Blessing from the Patchwork Butterfly set with DI onto the background panel, then matted and layered it onto the base card.  

I shaped the butterflies and attached them to the card then added some gems to the bodies.

I love this card, it turned out even better than I thought it would!  The colours work really well together and the design is a great worker card for lots of occasions.  
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you like this post and will pop in again soon  :)
