Orange Butterflies

Here's yet another project I made for the DTGD challenges at SCS!  One thing about these challenges is that they often made you think outside the box and although this is quite different to the sorts of things I normally make, I did actually like the way it turned out.

I started by making the base out of Kraft using the Blossom 2 Nestabilities set.  Next I cut a piece of Tangerine Tango, pierced the edge and topped with more Kraft that has been stamped with Versamark using the Gerber Daisies set by Flourishes.  Down one side I've added some ivory satin ribbon and topped with orange dotted grosgrain ribbon.  I then stamped the two butterflies from the same set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YR12, YR16, YR18) and then cut them out and popped them up on foam tape.  To finish I added the sentiment, also from Gerber Daisies to the top of the card.

Stamps: Gerber Daisies (Flourishes)
Paper: X-press It Blending Card, Kraft, Tangerine Tango 
Ink: Versamark, Memento Rich Cocoa 
Accessories: Copics, Orange Spica Pen, Blossom 2 Nestabilities, Ivory Ribbon, Orange Organdy Ribbon, Scissors, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Foam Tape.   

 That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
