Butterfly Stripes

This is my card of today, and I'll be sending it in for these two challenges:

Dynamic Duo's who have these colours, and

Simply Less is More  who want a ONE LAYER CARD with

Here is my card

First, I stamped the flowers with their spotty stems and added a few extra blue flowers. Then I stamped the two small butterflies, and added the sentiment to the bottom one. Next, I used my butterfly punch to make a shaped hole in some scrap paper, and positioned it near the centre of the card. I masked off a strip across the aperture and sponged along it with blue ink, then moved the masks and sponged in the gap with green ink, and continued along the whole area. When I removed the masks, I was left with white stripes as well which I quite liked so left them alone. The last thing was to stamp the body and spots on the wings of the large butterfly.

Supplies :
Card = White card FMS
Stamps = Simply Said and Flight of the Butterfly
Inks = Lucky Limeade and Pool Party
Tools = Butterfly punch, sponges and masking tape

I had forgotten to post this card. It was what we made at our Tuesday workshop.

The image was stamped onto some White card which was then cut up into nine tiles. The edges of these were sponged and then placed onto card brown card with a gap in between each one, then onto some blue card with a scalloped top. This was then placed on some DSP and wrapped with a green ribbon.

Supplies :
Card = Bashful Blue, Tan and White cards FMS
Stamps = Upsy Daisy and Verve
Inks = Gumball Green, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Tea Dye TH ink
Tools = Martha Stewart punch
Extras = ribbon and 3D pads

I'm in hospital for my RA treatment again on Wednesday so I may be off blogland for a few days while I recover in bed. I'm sorry that I haven't had chance to blog hop lately, but you can see by the times that I have posted my last few entries, just how late at night they have been, and I don't think the match sticks keeping my eyes open can hold for much longer!.

Have fun crafting, and I hope to be back as soon as I can to leave some comments.
