Flutter By

After checking out Brenda's butterfly, I thought I would post a butterfly that I made a few weeks ago for a friend (who also is my main shopping stop). I used a butterfly stamp from Innovative Stamp creations. It is from their Elegant Artsy Swirls Plate, and I love love love this plate.

I used a brayer for the first time wahoo!!! The Cappuccino Delight Kaleidacolor Ink pad was used on Watercolor paper, which I then sprayed gently with water to meld the colors. Then used black ink and clear embossing powder on the butterfly itself. Cut it out, mounted it with some foam glue dots for depth, and voila a purdy autumn winged creature

I used some Wassail Basic Grey paper and defined the butterfly a little by using galaxy markers and a white souffle pen. The diamond background was versamarked then dusted with gold perfect pearls. A little bit of gold ribbon and a thank you card was born.

Happy Crafting


  1. Stunning card, I love the butterfly and your brayering is perfect. TFS

  2. Beautiful card, you did a great job with the brayer!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a kink comment :)

  3. Thank you for the comments ladies. I was very nervous using that brayer for the first time. Glad I tok the jump and tried it.

  4. Just dropping by from the Inklink to check out your new blog. I think this is beautiful! I have that ink set, but I always seem to forget how lovely it is. Hmmm, and I don't believe that I've ever tried to brayer on w/c paper.... something else to try! :)


Thank you so very much for taking a moment to leave a comment. I really appreciate what you have to say
