About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 78 - Flutterby Butterfly!

Hello. Another one of my AquaTint backgrounds made up into a card - probably the last for a while as I have other things to work on! 

This one is made up of Bright and Beautiful 56, Pretty Pastels 59 and Pretty Pastels 05. It's another splatter technique - a comibination of the Distress Splatter brush and Spray bottle.
I then stamped the corner stamps from Textures stamps: Walls and Corners, & Splats and Stains, using VersaFine Imperial Purple.
The swirls are Sheena Best Friend Swirls.
I then embossed with Textures Elements Sunbeam folder.
I then cut it down, and inked it with Wilted Violet Distress Ink.
Forget to take any more photos - but I then used Pebeo Renaissance Gold gilding wax over the top, before mounting on some coppery mirror card from my stash. The butterfly is Sheena Country Cottage Perfect Partners All A Flutter, and the flourishes are Sara Davies' Floral Delight Leafy Flourish. 
The sentiment is from Die'sire Sentimentals Nature set.
Back tomorrow,
