Just Add Butterflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is to Just Add Butterflies, JAI#272.

Butterflies #Stampin'Up!

I began by embossing the black card with the Butterflies TIEF in the Big Shot. I die cut the two banners using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

I stamped the flowers (Awesomely Artistic stamp set) in Versamark ink, then added clear embossing powder and heat set. I used the Blender Pens with Wild Wasabi ink to colour them.

Colours used: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Gold.

Butterflies #Stampin'Up!

The sentiment is from the Greetings Thinlits in gold glitter paper, as is the butterfly (Bold Butterfly Framelits).

Please leave a comment below, if you think my card met this sketch challenge.

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.

  4. Really lovely, eye-catching, card, Kate! I love that the base of your card is a dramatic black … and it looks fantastic, embossed with all those delightful butterflies. Such pretty details in the glimmery accents, and coloured foliage. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.
