Butterfly Basics Bundle

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an inspiration challenge JAI#253.

My immediate reaction to this image was “Wow, look at that gorgeous hot pink colour”!

I also love butterflies, so this challenge was going to be just that, butterflies, melon mambo and black.

Butterfly Basics

I love this Butterfly Basics bundle of which the stamps are photopolymer, so extremely easy to use and it has the coordinating dies. Awesome!

The base card is Black with a layer of Melon Mambo cardstock and then another layer or black, which is stamped with Craft White ink using the fern stamp. I stamped the ink off before applying to the cardstock, so that it wasn’t too white and stark.

The butterfly is the main focus of this card so it stands out in its Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana colourings. I added 5 pearls for each antennae.

I didn’t feel this card needed a sentiment, so I left it blank.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope. I never send a “nude” envelope!
