Flutter by Butterfly

8pm and I'm typing this post it's been one of those days!!! Walshie stayed home today after a tooth extraction yesterday - poor thing he didn't get much sleep last night
Anyway, this is the card I made for this weeks Sketch Challenge on Stamp TV. Every week they have several challenges for us to enter and if you're the lucky name to picked at random you get to choose a set of stamps from the Gina K range. Better still if the stamp you used on your card is one of Gina's range your name goes in the draw twice. Go check it out - click on the Stamp TV badge and it will take you straight there!
So Kathy was the sketch designer this week with the centre image being set at an angle I chose to use a butterfly - whew that took care of the angle problem!
  • Stamp: GKD Eclectic Summer
  • Card Stock: GKD Pure Luxury soft sand, DP Kaiserscrapbook- Rustic Charm D/S, Bazzil black and honeycomb.
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Egyptian Gold Embossing Powder.
  • Embellishments: caramel gross grain ribbon and a gold ring.
Lots of layers on this card, with the honeycomb piece embossed with Swiss dots. The butterfly was stamped then cut out and embossed with the gold and some colour added with Copic markers. This is then attached to the card by its body only with a slim strip of tape so the wings are free. I added some foam just beneath the upper wing to sit it up from the background.
Hope you like this one.
Till next time.........
