Things with Wings

Have had an evening to myself and took the opportunity to update my blog with a couple of my recent creations. The first being my post for the indigoblu challenge and now this one for the Frilly and Funkie challenge.

Butterflies & Stylised flowers all from Indigoblu.

Brayered background with Indigoblu Wimberry Pie, Marshmallow and Vodka Martini paints. Also used an old credit card to scrape paint over parts of the background. I then stamped the stylised flowers in Stazon Vibrant Violet again to add to the background.

I then stamped the stylised flowers and butterflies with Versamark and embossed in white and cut out one of the butterflies. The verse was stamped in Vibrant violet onto white card and cut into strips.

The main card was cut down to 90mmx155mm and mounted onto white card (135mmx160mm). This was then mounted onto a card 145mmx168mm which was coloured with Wimberry Pie and Marshmallow and stamped with the stylised flower in violet. This was mounted onto a white card blank 150mmx175mm. Finally the verse strips and butterfly were added to the card.

Thank you for taking a look and enjoy the rest of your evening



  1. Lovely. Purple is my favourite colour. Could I ask how you get your stamped words so neat and tidy? I'm so rubbish I give up in the end xx

    1. thanks Dawn. I've stamped with Stazon onto white card several times and cut out, then used the best ones on the card. x
