While visiting a friend's blog recently I saw a link to Aurora's wings Digi-stamps. I'd not heard of them before but I liked the image on their link thumbnail so I looked them up. Not all the images were in a style I would chose, but I came across this girl and she immediately made me think of this month's Butterfly Challenge, where the theme is Summer Butterflies. So I bought her, along with a couple of other images and last night I used her for my card.
The base card is a pre-printed one, that I have had for ages. it's probably another of my QVC surplus store buys. I'm always glad when I think to use up some ancient stash!
The image from Aurora Wings digi-stamps, was dusted with DI tumbled glass, and coloured with copics. I printed a second copy and decoupaged the largest butterfly and the front flower on her hair. The top layer of the butterfly was swiped with versamark and embossed with clear powder, and a little stickles was added to the wing tips, and to the yellow flowers.
Using an off-cut of yellow card, the frame was cut and embossed with a Marrianne die, and the embossed detail was inked with Memento grape ink, before removing it from the die. I don't care for this hard shade of yellow very much, but it went with my coloured flowers and the detail on the base card. There was just enough left to cut the sentiment with Britannia dies. (I was also determined to use up something from my yellow/orange/red snippets box as it is bursting at the seams, and this was the best option!).Two foil butterfly stickers were the finishing touches.
