Made a card with some decorated butterflies ......

I used a 6 x 6 inch white card base .......

I then matted a piece of Gelli print for the background and stamped this with some scribbly circles in Archival sepia ink and some leaves in two shades of Distress Oxide inks.

The butterflies were stamped on white card with Verafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, these were die-cut and decorated with Acrylograph pens. The background was matted on pale blue and black cards then applied to the card front.  I added a couple of strips of AAll & Create Washi tape before mounting the butterflies as shown.

Blue ......


Made a card using the fabulous 'Happy Cat' stamp from Crafty Individuals .....

I used a 6 x 6 inch white card-base. I then took a piece of the Crafty Individuals 'Wonderfully Weathered' background paper and attached it to some white card. I then die-cut this with two sizes of stitched circle dies. The central circle was attached centrally to the card base.

I then stamped the 'Happy Cat' stamp designed by Ellie Mulligan (CI - 523) in Versafine black ink on white card and heat embossed this with clear embossing powder before trimming out. The fabulously detailed image was then painted with my old Twinkling H2O's in three shades of blue with his nose and eye are in brown, adding a splash of white Posca pen on his eyes. He was then placed in the outer die-cut circle as shown and trimmed to fit with his ears mounted on foam pads to add a little depth.....

The circle with the cat was then applied over the circle on the card base on double thickness foam pads to raise it.

The words were stamped in black Versafine from a plate (CI - 258 - Uplifing Words) and mounted on more of the background paper applying as shown on foam pads to finish ....

Loving the detail on the main stamp .....
