Butterfly Post

The latest Butterfly Challenge is 'S for Stamping and/or Sapphire' and I've made this small notelet using both stamping and various shades of blue.  I'm also entering Becky's Place February challenge.

Card blank: 5" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Butterfly Post (magazine freebie)
Punch: Woodware 2" square 
Embossing: Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots', Stampendous clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Majestic Blue
Colouring: Faber-Castell colour pencils
Card:  Turquoise mirri and white silk 
Other: Wink of Stella

I embossed a square of white card with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, layered it onto turquoise mirri (I didn't have any dark blue mirri and my thrifty crafting year is making me use what I have before I buy any more!) then attached this to the card front.  The image was stamped onto white silk card, embossed with clear embossing powder before I punched a square.  I coloured the background of the stamp with a lemon pencil and the butterfly with dark blue, pale blue and turquoise pencils before highlighting the wings with a Wink of Stella.  The image was layered onto a snippet of turquoise mirri card before being attached to the card front with Pinflair glue.

That is one pretty stamp. I am on board with the idea of using up what we have, it can make us more creative too! I always like blue and white and this is gorgeous.
It is good to see you over at the Butterfly Challenge.

I love your card Kath, it's gorgeous! The blue and white work beautifully together and I love all the embossing in the background. I have several stamps that are quite difficult to use, but your design has just given me the inspiration I need to pull them out again. Gorgeous!
