LAYERED BUTTERFLIES


Happy Saturday and Bank Holiday Weekend! Yippee! Hope you are having some crafty time.

I've 2 very quick cards to share and apologies I've been missing all week ... work got in the way and I was trying yesterday but not getting very far! Except this card which is at a love / hate sort of stage with me. I don't normally use so many layers but I do like this mix of turquoise and yellows with greys but on this one I went for a touch of Orange too!


Challenges for this one:
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Colour Me Card Challenge - Anything Goes but use 5 colours of your own choice

So if I had to match these colours with the Stampin Up range there'd be:

Pumpkin Pie
Pool Party
Crushed Curry
Basic Grey
White

My ancient and tatty heat gun seems to have come back out to play quite a bit in the last few months and on this card I've stamped the grey cardstock with one of the circle border strips from Uniko (Background - Circles) then clear embossed it and I quite like that added bit of texture.

Other Materials Used:
Clearly Besotted: Elegant Butterfly Dies, Scalloped Border Die, It's Your Birthday stamp set
Sizzix Nestabilities Scalloped Circles & Framelits Circles, Dotty Embossing folder
MFT Die-namics - Pierced Rectangle (new purchase and love it BUT now want all the pierced stax sets!)
Papers from my stash
Enamel Dots: Stampin Up, Doodlebug & My Minds Eye
