Another Butterfly Card

Here is another card I made recently using the same stamp plate as in my previous post .

For this card I stamped the moth butterfly randomly onto gloss card using Versamark ink and then clear embossed the images. I then used a Speedball brayer and an Adirondack multi coloured inkpad (sadly discontinued) to brayer over the piece of card and of course, the embossed butterflies resisted the ink. I then took an acetate jacket and stamped and embossed the scroll corner again from the same stamp plate, using Moonglow EP. Finally I stamped and embossed the butterfly with the same Moonglow EP onto Artylicious DP from the Simple Elegance pack, cut it out and attached it to the acetate over the central butterfly on the card underneath. I left the wings free to create a bit more movement.

I hope everyone is gearing up to a nice relaxing weekend. I can't say I will be relaxing exactly as in about 15 minutes time my youngest granddaughter is arriving to stay with me and her Grandad for the weekend while Mum and Dad go to a wedding. She's 22 months old now so into everything. I think I might be pretty shattered (but pleasantly so) by Sunday, Lol!

Thanks for looking everyone.

Absolutely as gorgeous in real life as in the pics, Lesley! I have this card (or at least its twin) on my mantelpiece and it is a stunner. Great use of acetate and a really original card.
