Butterfly Challenge #152

 I came across this pretty cream die cut shape while I was having a bit of a tidy up of my craft space and thought that it would come in nicely for the 'ivory' part of the latest Butterfly Challenge.  I've added a green layer and inked some stamps to make a  little scene, finally layering it all onto a light blue background which on my screen does appear to be more light mauve than the blue specified ๐Ÿ™„.  If you pop over to the challenge page you will be able to see a very interesting 'inside out' card style together with an excellent tutorial.  I decided this time just to stick to the ivory, pale blue and pale green with of course a butterfly.  I'm not sure if the stamping counts as ink. 

 Stamps - from a magazine freebie set
Green circle - Tattered Lace die
Ivory shape - possibly a Marianne die - piece has been in a pile on my desk for a while!!

  2. The stamping does count as ink as you have used it for the butterfly and not just a sentiment.great use of combining the three colours.i am trying to use the bits and bobs that seem to arrive on my desk and never go anywhere. Thankyou for coming and playing in the butterfly garden even just for fun.hugs Mrs A.
