HAVE I TOLD ANYONE I LOVE BUTTERFLIES...

Looking back over my recent posts anyone would think I've a thing for butterflies! I do like them but I blame Stephanie at Clearly Besotted for her adorable stamp sets ... just can't get enough of them and Elegant Butterflies has to go down as a favourite.

So here's another card using that very set AGAIN for the Less is More and Dynamic Duos Challenges this week. Jen and Chrissie have really pushed the limits this week with 'shadow stamping' ... unless I've wobbled the stamp and made a mess I've never tried this technique before and I can't decide whether I like it or not.

Anyway check it out and feedback is much appreciated:




I've stamped each butterfly 3 times without re-inking the stamp then coloured with Promarkers, using the colour combo from Dynamic Duos. Both the butterflies and sentiment are from Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterfly set and I've added some hemp cord plus glossy accents to the outline edge of the butterflies.



Ok off to check out Britain's Got Talent ... not sure how long I'll manage to sit though!!
