A Bit Of Krafting

Good morning everyone, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some sunshine as we did - very necessary after Friday's deluge which caused huge problem down here in the South with flooding everywhere. Happily I got to work although soaked through and had to dry some of my clothes with a towel - my boots took ages to dry near the radiator too!
We have a new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday chosen by Jan this week and she has challenged us to use some kraft card on our creation. I loved this one as it's a favourite of mine and my inspiration this time is a fairly simple card.

The background kraft card was embossed on both sides with a Darice border folder, butterfly swirls.

I then stamped the Papermania Urban image with Archival coffee ink onto a piece of smooth, thick cartridge paper coloured with green and blue Distress Stains. I then added further colour to the butterflies with more Distress Stains.

I stamped the Hobby Art sentiment with the coffee ink on a further scrap of cartridge paper coloured with Distress Stains and added this as a finishing touch.

Have a great day.
Fliss xx
