Anyone who has read my previous post will know that I misread the criteria for a challenge and was left with a paper-pieced butterfly looking for a place to land. Well this week she has landed on a card I made for my sister's 82nd birthday.
The butterfly was made using a Leane Creatief stamp which I won as a prize in an earlier Butterfly Challenge. I stamped her onto various snippets of yellow and orange paper and cut out the individual sections to glue in place on an image made by stamping on white card.
I found a piece of burnt orange card to make the base. For the next layer I used a new set of stamps and matching dies from Altnew, called Amazing You. First I stamped the various leaves off the edge around a piece of white paper cut to fit the card front. I coloured these with copic markers.
Then I stamped some of the flowers onto snippets of the same papers I had used for the butterfly, and cut them out with the corresponding dies. I added a little colour to their centres and glued them to the stems and leaves.
The sentiment is a very old stamp by Crafty Individuals, and I finished the card off by randomly adding green and orange card candy in the spaces.
I am going to link this up to Pixie's Snippets Playground as I haven't been over to lay for a while.
