Butterfly Blue


For the next month the Creative Expressions Design Team have been sent the "Eco Green Stamp set Garden Chic". I used the lovely butterfly stamp and the tiny sweetpea stamp for this card. The butterfly reminded me of those large blue butterflies that you see at Butterfly farms. I painted the wings with pearlised blue paint and once dry I coated the whole butterfly with glossy accents.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:

"Crafting for all seasons - blue and white"

"Paper Pretties - Blue, Black and White"

"Simon Says Stamp = Anything goes"

"Stampavie and More- Blue and White"

"Creative Card Challenges - the colour blue"

"Lollypop Crafts - Wing it"
