Danni has been running the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge for ages now; I don't get to play along as often as I'd like. This week, for a change, I have a card to submit for the challenge. I visited the shop Made by You last Friday and had a play with some of Pat's workshop bits and pieces and came up with a couple of cards, including this one that I finished up at home. The butterfly is a Little Claire clear stamp, very large and ideal to use with shrink plastic. I've stamped it twice, silver embossed it and painted it with Distress Inks straight from the bottle, something I've not used before. The two background panels are stamped with a Papermania scrolly-leaf stamp in Distress Inks and the first panel also has some inks applied with a sponge. The vine shapes were cut from a long Cuttlebug border, I stuck both these and the butterfly layers down with silicon glue to give them dimension.
