Butterfly Love


Woohoo Saturday again and another challenge from Less is more.  This week we have to take 3 challenges from the previous weeks and combine them.  I've gone for week 1 Pink Black and White, week 4 3 Squares and Week 16 Butterflies.  To be honest it was really difficult to choose as most of the challenges have been brilliant.  Sorry but the acetate one scarred me a little, hee hee.

So onto todays card, very simple really, a Whisper White base then  3 squares cut from Basic Black.  The butterflies from Butterfly Prints, I coloured directly onto the stamp using my Blender pen and Melon mambo.  I only coloured the centres enough to pick up the different patterns.  Then I coloured "Love" from the sentiment in Melon Mambo and positioned it with my Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Thanks for taking the time to come visit.  I'm sure this weeks Less is More talent will produce some very varied results, it's well worth a look. x

Colour combination goes so well with the butterflies, love the way you have left the edges plain and only stamped the centres of the wings.
