Well I'm not feeling blue this Monday however as its Monday and toady's card is blue its seemed appropriate! What could brighten up a nice blue than a host of butterflies?
Originally this card didn't have any butterflies on it it was simply the die cuts however it seemed just too harsh! I started die cutting the beautiful butterflies from the Sue Wilson Magical Butterflies die set and inked the edges using broken china distress ink I do seem to be getting into more stamping and distressing at the moment!
The readier of the card is, relatively, simple. I die cut the french collection background in coconut white foundation card and foam mounted this over a piece of cornflower blue card. I then die cut the largest filigree die from the french collection Burgundy die set and inked it through the die. Next I cut the smallest centre die from the same set, inked it in the die, and added the sentiment.
Finally I added a few gems to highlight the edges and detail of the background die and added, using cosmic shimmer dries clear glue, the butterflies as if they had alighted onto the card. There are also a few dots of pearl PVA glue to make the bodies.
