Butterfly trail - Thursday 9th May

Hello Friends,

Thank you for visiting my blog and (hopefully) leaving a comment! After the last two very long blogs, a very quick one today..this was one of the cards I made for the recent large order for an assortment of small cards and is a variation on a design by Sue Wilson in the second Creative Expressions design book, just adapted for a smaller card.

Apologies for the photograph, I didn't realise it was quite so dark until I just uploaded's  a 6x6 card..the first white layer was pin pricked, then I matted and layered in black and white, using cosmic shimmer pearl PVA for the butterfly trail. The butterfly I used isn't a die, but a punch I have had for a very long time!

We have another workshop tonight and our ladies will be making the cards using the Indigo Blu BFF stamp that I featured in my post of 27th April, so photos here tomorrow!
