Butterfly Kisses

Hello my crafting friends I hope today finds you all safe and well, if not I send you plenty of hugs.

Today's card features a lucky buy that I saw  in my local craft shop. This Butterfly stamp was an ex-demo and reduced from £6.99 to 75p!!! Yes you did read correctly, I did ask before buying it whether the price was right and the Lady said it must be if that's what it says so I snapped it up before they changed their minds lol! It had only been used once so I was quite chuffed with it and thought it quite a pretty butterfly stamp.

Now before I stamped the focal image I sprayed some diluted water colour paints onto my Cream card, let it dry then stamped my Butterfly stamp using a Veramark ink pad and heat embossed with Black embossing powder. I coloured in the Butterflies using Promarker Pens. I then die cut the channel in the card.

On more card I sprayed the diluted water colours again but using different colours, more Blues and Purples this time. I attached the Butterfly stamped card over the top leaving the channel to show the sprayed coloured card underneath.

I stamped my sentiment up the top using Archival Black then matted it onto more Cream card for the base and there you have the finished card.
