Whimsy Butterfly


I finally decided to get my Garden Whimsy set inky. I used Blue Bayou for my card base, and added Soft Sky Prints, and Holiday Harmony designer papers. This time I chose the large butterfly for my main image, which I stamped with Purely Pomegranate, and highlighted with my Copic Spica clear glitter pen for added sparkle. I used my Janome Mini sewing machine to sew the image panel to my card base. The sentiment is stamped in Blue Bayou, and punched with my Large Oval punch. I layered it on a small piece of Blue Bayou, trimmed with my Fiskars Mini Scalloped Paper Edgers, and mounted it on my card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used my Photo Corner Punch with Purely Pomegranate to 'balance' the colors, and added some Gemstones from Hero Arts for a bit of bling. The ribbon is Double Stitched Blue Bayou.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!!

Very nice, Rose Ann! Love it--the colors and the stitching--super! It's nice to see you using this set. I haven't inked it since the first two cards I made with it. Guess I'd better try and get my money's worth out of it some time...
