Less is More - Butterflies


The challenge at Less is More this week is butterflies.  Found myself flitting between different ideas much like a butterfly today but settled on this one. 

I've gone monochrome using Concord Crush.  The little butterfly is from Sweet Summer.    

First of all I cut a rectangle of Whisper White so I could mount it on to Concord Crush card and then onto my Whisper White card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Prints then inked the leaves from Just Believe once and stamped it three times.  The butterflies were then stamped in a heart shape using a template punched from the Full Heart Extra Large punch.  I cut out three butterflies to add a bit of dimension to the center of the heart.  The butterflies wings were coloured using the Concord Crush Stampin' Write Marker.  I then added some Crystal Effects to the tips of the wings to add a little sparkle.


A close up of the heart and single butterfly.

Thanks once again for taking the time to look.  Enjoy your weekend. x
