Spread Your Wings and Fly

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Hosting is
Vicki choosing -

I'm afraid I didn't have a teapot in my collection so
went away from that and choosing the teapot colours
as my background. I found 2 matching coloured scrapbook papers
and cut them out with  a Spellbinder Square die
corner rounding 2 sides of each square.
These were popped onto white card stock that has been
cut with a stitched die.
Now the fun part - my butterfly
I got out various coloured distress inks similar to the
photographed butterfly and smooched them onto
card stock then cut the butterfly from a Kaisercraft die.
This was then heat embossed with clear powder
giving my butterfly a lovely shine.
The sentiment is from Gina K and
finished off with a few pearls.

Thanks for dropping in on my blog today
and hope you will check out what
our March Guest Nance and the Team created
Here and come join us.

What a glorious butterfly, Ina. And that background. I have a die that is similar to what you created and couldn't quite figure out what to do with it. This gives me a great idea.

Those colors are so well tuned to each other and very spring like. I love the butterfly as well.

Nancy said...

Judy Woodland said...

What a wonderful idea to make your own beautiful patterned paper to cut that butterfly with. I love this card, the background rounded squares are perfect. Such a pretty clean and simple card!!! Pinning once again!
