City Crafter - Butterfly My Butterfly


Our new challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog is to create a project using a butterfly.

I created a watercolour background using distress inks, then stamped the sentiment (ADFD polymer stamp) , masked it and stamped the frame (Basic Grey. I made this over the Christmas period and it was one of the last stamps in my 'empty box project' box.).  I  stamped the butterfly, coloured it in with watercolour pencils  and covered it with Glossy Accents. I stamped a splodge and distressed the edges. 

I bet you have a stamp, sticker, die or stencil of a butterfly, don't you? Why not join in our challenge? We have a fabulous Guest Designer, Dora, so please come to City Crafter, to see what she, and the DT have made, and join in.

Your card is beautiful and is a great mix of many styles, a very simple and stylish shabby chic inspired design, that's the closest description I think...
