Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of butterfly cards to share with you. If you have followed my blog for a while you will recognise that I have made this card before – in the turquoise colour, but I thought that it needed some friends. I am really happy with the results. They are coloured in with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Beware, there are quite a few photos….

And then one showing all the colours together! Not sure which colour I like best…but I am partial to the turquoise, pink and blue ones!


Stamps: Hero Arts Antique Engravings
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured single fold), turquoise, mustard, pink, dark blue, purple and orange Bazzill card
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubbs, Kaisercraft pearls – pearl and snow, TLC Quik words and Kaisercraft rubons.

I love making sets…there is something complete about it! It appeals to my sense of ordered-ness!

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
