Crafty Cardmakers challenge-74-winged-things
Totally Papercrafts challenge-133-butterflies, buttons and bows
The Stamp Man - Summer Sizzlers - use hot colours
The base, A5 size card was coloured with Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick Distress Inks. The image layer was coloured in the same way but it was spotted with water to lift spots of colour. The American Seam Binding was coloured on both sides using the same inks again.
The flowers and butterflies were stamped with Versamark and embossed with black glint embossing powder from WOW. The stamps (flowers and butterflies) are by Sheena Douglass from her Silhouette Wildflowers set.
Once the image was dry it was mounted onto black card with a length of the ribbon wrapped round it. The bow was made separately and bonded in place. On top of the bow is a red button with an orangey red thread bow tied on it. and very small craft buttons, which were free with a magazine, finish off the embellishment.
