All Of A Flutter

Good morning folks, hope you all had a lovely weekend. It's time for the next challenge over at Make My Monday and it's the last of our January Nature challenges, This week we would like to see your creations with Butterflies And/Or Dragonflies which is why we're all of a flutter lol.


I'm down in the meadow again with my card which also features my use of natural kraft file dividers for crafting as they're so much cheaper than kraft card.
I stamped the wild flowers (The Stamp Bug's Alpine Flowers UM016 and Alpine Meadow UM017) with Memento inks in shades of green, pink and purple. I then over stamped with versamark and embossed with white detail powder.
I stamped the butterflies (Hero Arts) with brown ink, coloured with pencils and cut them out. I assembled the card as you see on a Craftwork Cards scalloped card blank. Simples!

The Design Team have created a beautiful array of samples to inspire you so do pop over for a peek. Hope to see you there as the theme is sure to be a popular one.

Challenges for my card:
Crafty Catz - Things With Wings
Crafting When We Can - Something NOT Intended For Crafting (file dividers)
Quirky Crafts - Make A Scene

Have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Poppet said...

I've found some great ideas through this recycle challenge. This is another great idea Fliss and the kraft colour makes a wonderful backdrop for your gorgeous meadow scene with the beautiful butterflies.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us at Crafting When We Can Challenges. :-) xx
