Butterfly Girl

Haven't done any card making for a week or so (I managed to burn my hand on a frying pan so was out of action for awhile).

I've had this stamp for a while but have never got round to using it before and thought she went really well with the soft pastel look i was going for with this card.

Products used:

  • Papers - Melissa Frances and K&Co
  • Stamped Image - Sugar Nellie Homegrown
  • Embellishments - Paper Roses, Punched out leaves, Ribbon
  • Tools used - Primsa Pencils, Distress inks (Bundled Sage), Leaf Punch, Nestabilities, Paperstumps (for blending), white pen for stitching.

I coloured the images using Primsa color pencils and blended using sansador cut and bordered it using nestabilities and also cut out the two exra circles of co-ordinating decorative papers, edged them with distress ink and finished with punched out leaves and paper roses.

I'm entering this for the following challenges:
