Little Butterfly.....

Hi guys...its a terrible day here in Kent..(again)..the rain is lashing down (again) so I'm staying put indoors and crafting :-))

I bought the August issue of Craft Stamper and their free stamp was a beautiful butterfly.  I always read the magazine cover to cover and over again...!!!..the project that caught my eye this time was by Paula Whittaker who used Highlighter Pens together with distress inks to make backgrounds... I was so enthralled with this that I came up with this little card...

As Paula suggested...I  just applied the highlighter pen all over white card then added Walnut Stain distress ink around a bit then I sanded it down a little to the white card again and added more walnut stain.  I stamped the butterfly with Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed with clear powder and I mounted it with a little bit of brown bazzzill and added a couple of lengths of linen button thread for texture and kept the sentiment simple....I love the look and the simplicity of it.
well I'm off now to get cracking on some more cards
Have a great day....yes I know its
