It is time for Challenge #13 over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! This time around, our theme is Butterflies or Bugs. I'm not sure about you, but for me, it has me thinking of Spring! Butterflies were a favorite of my mother's. Throughout her home, you would find butterflies pinned onto flower arrangements, curtains, and at Christmas, they were ornaments on her Christmas Tree! So when I set out to make my card, it was a comforting feeling to be making a card with Butterflies in honor of my precious mother who we lost 12 years ago, today.
I chose to use a set of Butterfly stamps and words from a set by Cavellini. I stamped the butterflies in a row, as a collector might do, and water colored them with Distress Inks. The white background seemed stark to me, so I soften it with more Distress Inks and some word stamps from the set. Embellishments include a flower trim, a doily, a vintage button and Baker's Twine, a dimensional glittery butterfly by Martha Stewart and some Ranger Stickles.
Please check out the FSC site for stunning inspirational pieces by the Design Team and then we hope you will give the challenge a go, too! As always, no digi stamps, please. You can find full details at FSC, along with the prize you will be working towards. Thanks for dropping by and Think Spring! Best, Yvonne
