N for not square & navy

Oh I missed my butterflies!

I love how this card turned out, wasn't sure at first, but after a few little teaks here and there, I finally got it looking right.

Using a DoCrafts 'Oval' die, I cut two in white card - and stuck them back to back to make a card (the back one has been trimmed at the bottom to make it stand up). Using the next Oval down in size I cut a piece of Prima 'Fairy Belle' and used that has the background paper.
The white flowers were coloured with Indigo Blue promarker, left these a while to dry as I didn't want to smudge the colour on the white card, then stuck large pearls onto the centres.
I used another oval die for the sentiment topper - first I found a stamp to fit it, then used Dovecraft Royal Blue pigment ink.
I glued on the flowers using silicone glue, to allow myself wiggle room to get them in the right postion.
Once everything was glued down, I die cut 4 butterflies in matching white card, using a Tattered Lace mini die and placed them on the flowers.
The final touch was adding all the smaller pearls round the ovals.

  1. Well I don't know what it was you needed to tweak but the resulting card is just gorgeous. What a brill idea to take white flowers and colour them to the shade you wanted. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge where your card will be entered twice for the prizes. Hugs Mrs A.
