Butterflies or Bugs with the...

fashionettes over at the Fashionable Stamping ChallengeThe current challenge is Butterflies and Bugs.  As I used my bee stamp in the last challenge for Fashionable Stamping I am using butterflies.  They are anyway one of my favourite things to stamp.



Another 8x8 card from me - I started first with the focal panel, which I inked using distress inks;- peeled paint and tumbled glass.  I stamped three of Marianne Design Eline Huis Butterfly stamps in Versafine sepia,  I then masked these and overstamped with a flourish and text stamp.  The butterflies were then stamped again onto inked paper and then layered to give depth.

I then delved deep into the back of one of my cupboards and found some very old K&Co paper which I overstamped (as I wasnt fond of it now) with the text and flourish stamp and then distressed the edges with an emery board.  Added ribbon and a couple of Marianne Design Creatables die cuts:-
LR201 (a new die - it's so deep for a border die) and LR0192 (a really useful fern/foliage die).

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:-
