This was a bit of experiment I like but whether I would actually give it to someone maybe not. First of all I was sort of inspired by a Splitcoaststampers card sketch which is why I've torn patterned paper across the page.
The papers are Yesterday by Carta Bella and I used the Penny Black Divine stamp on the papers so I could paper pieced the flower heads. I was quite please how the patterned paper worked, a complete fluke.
My centre panel I used an Impression Obsession French text stamp with a Crafter Workshop Harlequin stencil made some greenish diamonds and a lot of inking round all the edges all the pieces of card including the flowers, butterflies etc.
I actually stamped the Penny Black stamp on my patterned card and white card in situ so the stems would just follow on. Any bits it missed was added in with a black pen.
My Butterflies are Simon says Stamp Butterflies friends had I added the antennas with a pen. The sentiment again the word die is from Simon Say Stamp.
My bags are packed and I'm off to an all day crop, I have my Hubby 60th Birthday photos and plan to make a CAS album for him. It will be interesting how CAS it will be!!!!!!
