A week ago I hurt my right hand and haven't been able to make anything. Oh it's been a long week as I'd been hoping to start putting together a quilt I'm making for my younger son. This morning my hand is feeling much better so I thought I'd test it out with a quick card and I'm happy to say that I think I'll be sewing this afternoon:)
To make the card I applied peacock feathers distress ink to an acrylic block, spritzed with water and stamped on white card. I repeated with the process until I was happy with the result. After the card had dried I stamped the sentiments - LOVE this gorgeous and versatile Stamp & Die set with Kelly Rasmussen's pretty handwriting. To finish the background I added a sprinkling of sequins.
Stamp - Happy Stamp & Cut (Hero Arts)
Dies - Isabella & Pippi Butterflies (Memory Box)
So then it was time to make my butterfly. I used scraps of black card and a piece of card, covered with spiced marmalade distress ink, which had been left over from another project.
After assembling the butterfly I attached it to the card using foam pads. I'm submitting this card into Simon Says Stamp's Happy Birthday Challenge.
