Butterfly Beauties

Posted on

As soon as I saw this photo of my granddaughter and her friends I knew I had to create a scrap page!

I began with the luscious Graphics 45 Natures Sketchbook papers. The colours were perfect with the photo. I needed a layer of black in between to set the colours off.

I wanted to link the pages together so I used Texture paste through a script stencil. Then for circles and butterflies, my favourite!

I darkened the dry stencilled images with Stabilo pencil then wet the edges with a water brush to add dimension.

The tag was created with corrugated card and Tims tag die. A smaller G45 paper piece was stuck on top, butterfly stencilled and inked.

Then for fussy cutting butterflies. The title was stamped with black ink then clear embossed. The background butterfly was also clear embossed.

Fine silk ribbon finished the tag. I am so pleased with the result.

My New Year Resolution was to join in more challenges, so I am starting with A Vintage Journey. The theme is Going round in circles,  I have used circles to make the page more cohesive.

check out their challenge and wish me luck! X
