Saffron Butterflies...


This week's Dynamic Duos challenge is a pretty one...

I had to laugh when I saw the 'dessert' option... with the amount of ribbon I use, this one wasn't gonna be a stretch lol! I've recently got my hands on the Basic Black craft inkpad and love the effect of stamping with it and embossing with clear EP - so much easier than embossing with black EP with all the speckles etc!

I started by stamping the frame (from Papaya Collage) onto Naturals Ivory with black craft ink and embossed with clear EP, then trimmed it out. I layered some So Saffron and Whisper White card inside and stamped and embossed the sentiment (from Blooming with Kindness). The butterflies were stamped above then on a piece of Very Vanilla, coloured with So Saffron ink and cut out and layered over the top of the main panel. The dsp in the background is from Tea for Two and I layered some lace from the Artisan Embellishments kit over the top as well as some Basic Black ribbon and a silver button.

Make sure you check out the gorgeous creations of the rest of the DT!

I'm off to rest for a bit before a workshop I have later this evening (I've been sneezing and coughing like crazy this morning so I'm hoping I'll feel a bit better in a few hours! Hubby will be on dinner duty...!)Thanks for stopping by...

  6. Amy,
    Everything just goes together so perfectly on this card! I especially like the metal button;)

  7. You never cease to amaze me! I love, love this card, mainly because you've taken stamp sets and a button that I've never been turned on by and made me want to have them. Gorgeous card Amy!

  8. Amy, this is so pretty!! Love that frame and those butterflies!!
