Butterflies - 2 in 1

I am entering this card for two challenges:

 For this card I have used a background paper from an Graphicus Guild pack that I have had for a while.  I took the colours for the rest of the card from that.  The glossy card has been resist stamped with images from a beautiful new theme plate, Patchwork Butterfly, also from Elusive Images, and the Create image is Hero Arts.  The background for Create has been coloured with distress inks which I dabbed on to a craft sheet and sprayed with water and swooshed the card over it, and while is was still damp sprayed with glimmer mists.  Ribbons and Moments tag from stash.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. So many pretty butterflies, and what a great job you did with this project. Love the effect you achieved with those distressed inks! Thanks so much for joining us for Flutter By Wednesday! :)

  2. Stunning card, Val! Love the colour combination x

  3. Lovely card Val! I particularly like your DI and GM background for the 'Create' stamp. The colours are gorgeous.

  4. I sooo love this. It's the sort of card I'd love to make but when I sit down to do it - nothing comes into my head. Fabulous creation.

  6. Hi!
    Your card is gorgeous! Lovely details and I love the colors!
    Thanks for the lovely comment, - I have written about the image and made a link in my blog now.

  7. This is stunning, Val. There is so much to look at and I'm so glad you've shared how you created it. I've bought the patchwork butterflies plate, but as yet it hasn't seen the light of day. I must have a play after seeing this.


  8. Val, thank you for joining in with us at Quixotic Challenges! Hope to see you playing again soon!

    Gorgeous card!
