I do have a card to share with you today as promised. Although I probably should be still working on Christmas cards for next year I need a break from all that. So leafing through my bella binders I came across this butterfly which I have not inked up yet. I am a big nature fanatic - whether it is flowers, birds, butterflies, trees, I have to have it!
As I was saying - I decided to use the Eclectric Butterfly in print by Isabella Norris which you can find at Stamping Bella.
I had no idea what I was going to do with this stamp. So I played around a bit and this is what I came up with. I stamped the image on bella's white c/s using burnt umber palette ink. I then cut out the center portion of the image using a circle s/binder die, then sponged some soft pink while the die was in place. I then stamped another image off on white cs using aqua mist ink, then cut out the butterfly. I used a glue pen and colouring in the wings, then added crystal glitter ritz, rubbed it in good then tapped off the excess. I used one of the s/binder dies from the Fancy Tags Two set to cut out the brown swirly piece underneath the butterfly. Designer paper is by Memory Box - Valise.
Finished the card off with some tiny white pearls. Card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.
So remember no bellariffic challenge this week, but we will start up again next week Jan 13h. Here is the sketch for you gals that would like to play along. Just remember to email your card to Emily before Jan 12.
That's it for day, I'll be back in a couple of days with another card. Thanks for stopping by.
