Butterflies

I had fun with this card although when it came to taking a photograph of it, it nearly drove me mad!!lol!  Its very dark and dreary here, so the photograph was really dull. Also the glossy accents on the butterflies are difficult to capture, they tend to reflect alot.  Never mind these are the best I could get. 


This card is for the colour Splash challenge#66  at The Play Date Cafe .  The Lace Background stamp from Hero Arts is one of my favourites and when stamped in Black reminds my of beautiful French Chantilly Lace. Here I have only stamped a portion of it and then added the gems and butterflies coloured with copics and coated in Glossy Accents.

I have a really busy weekend ahead, hope yours is more relaxing.

What a perfect card for the challenge Sally... I really like how it turned out. I don't use the lace background as much as I should... thanks for inspiring me to get it out again.

This is gorgeous, Sally! I love the way you have partially stamped the lace background and the butterflies are so beautiful! I love using glossy accents but hate trying to get photos of it on cards too.

Hi Sally

What a gorgeous card - just love your butterflies and the lace background stamp - I want one........ You are too hard on your self re the photography - yours are always fantastic - but I know what you mean when you can't quite capture the card as it is in real life - very frustrating.

Enjoy whats left of your weekend.

Hugs

Tina
