Well after over a week off crafting and blogging it was a challenge to walk into my craft room this evening, mainly because I remember the mess I left it in on Christmas Eve!
But I did, and this is what I've made...
I've been dying to have a play with this gorgeous Papillon Potpourri stamp set since I got it! There is also a punch to make cutting the larger butterflies out a doddle!
I have also used my Stampin' Around wheel for the first time. I've been a bit put off buying one due to needing a different ink cartridge for each colour, so I only bought a black cartridge for mine to give it a go. However, I wanted to do this one in blue, so I removed the ink cartridge and ran the wheel over my ink pad. It works just fine as long as you only want to roll the length of a card, then it starts to fade, and the colour isn't constant, but for this card I really like that effect :)
Can you see my 'hidden' butterfly? I also stamped one on the bottom right corner inside the card.
I wanted to use a sympathy sentiment with this card but I don't have one that I thought looked right, so I am leaving it for now.
