I hope you and your families are enjoying Father's Day if you are celebrating it in your part of the world. We have the family coming round later supposedly for a barbeque but the weather isn't looking promising at the moment so we'll have to see.
Today I want to share a card I made for my blogging friend Darnell and for the Clearly Besotted challenge
This will be my first time playing along and I have had some of Steph's lovely stamps for a while but most haven't seen ink yet so I thought I'd put that right.
For my card today I used the
Dandelion Dreams set, and I was about to stamp a flower when I saw that the highlighted stamp reminded me of a butterfly wing. So I used the back of the stamp twice to create the butterfly background
and then overstamped with the front of the stamp to create the fancy part of the butterfly.
Then all I had to do was add the body of the butterfly with a marker.
I used both inks to stamp the sentiment, used the PTI canvas impression plate to add a little texture, and a few flower sequins finished it off.
I mentioned that this is for my blogging friend Darnell who is having a challenge to mark the occasion of getting her 500th follower, and I made this card to celebrate her encouragement and support. Many Congratulations Darnell! If you haven't found Darnell's blog yet, I recommend that you scoot over there and be cheered up because she always raises a smile, if not an outright belly laugh with her entertaining posts. She also makes great cards!!!
This challenge asks that we use NBUS on a card and this stamp set had not been used before, although I think it will not be neglected again!
I'd also like to enter this into the
Before I go, I just couldn't resist re showing this card which I made a while ago with CB stamps, simply because it is one of my favourites and shows how great the stamps are.
Thanks for stopping by.
