Alcoholic Butterfly and Rose

Welcome

I loved how this card turned out with all it's sparkle


I started with a piece of alcohol inked yupo paper and decided to place it behind the cut out corner on the silver card. using this Memory Box Die


I then cut the solid Effera butterfly out of a snippet of the coloured alcohol  paper, and then a Pipi butterfly from a snippet vellum, and secured the two layers using Glossy Accents over the body which had been cut in kraft, again from a hoarded carefully treasured snippet of paper..


The sentiment and butterfly trail were stamped in purple ink, that I also sponged all the edges in.


The rose die cut is the one element I am not that happy with, but it is what it is...

Sparky and beautiful. The die cuts are great and the alcohol ink colours are gorgeous. Loving the vellum layer on the butterfly too x

Gorgeous card, Maxine. The alcohol inked paper is so pretty. I think the rose die cut finishes your card off perfectly. I had to smile when I read your blog post title.... I had a vision of a drunk butterfly flying round in circles! LOL!

This is beautiful Maxine. I love the shine on the alcohol paper, and anything with butterflies is good with me. I thought the element was more of a swirl than a rose, but it is just right for the space it fills. Kate xx
