Vintage Flutterbys

Welcome again.

This is my second post for the day, please scroll down for the other one.

Sue over at McMahon Digital Vintage has just released this beautiful butterfly set.


The set is entitled Go Confidently, as there is a sentiment that goes with it.


I used Cryogen paper to print the butterflies on, trimmed the image slightly on the right side, coloured the butterflies and background with chalks, and added some Crystal Stickles and Zva Crystals (trimmed)


The sentiment was not available when I made my card, so I added this stamped one from the D'Amour Allure Wishes of Love Acrylic Set.


The design paper is from the Lilybee pad Head over Heels and picks up a lot of the other colours in the card.


There are a lot of new designs this week, and a new designer ,over at McMahon Five Design - do pop over to the blog to catch up with all the news.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting again - may your day be blessed.

  8. A very pretty card Maxine. I love how the butterflies extend beyond the rectangle - makes them look like they are truly in flight landing on your card. The texture and colors in your card are so pretty too. Thanks for joining us at Inky Inpressions challenges!
