LADY ANNE'S STAMP CHALLENGE NO 10 : BLUE (BUT NOT SAD) BUTTERFLIES


Hi there fellow blogsters, I do hope you are enjoying the warm weather - must admit I can't get used to seeing the yellow blob in the sky more than once in a week!  lol. 

I have a second slightly late card to show you today and this is one I made for my other DT spot at Lady Anne's Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.  This image is by Floppy Latte - isn't that a great name???? 

I've never coloured a butterfly before so I thought I would keep it simple and use just three blue Copics.  I coloured two images and then fussy cut the second butterfly  to pop on the top of the card.  I was telling Graham how I was cutting it out and that it's aerials were really thin so I was being extra careful.  He looked at me in that special way they have - you know the one they all get when they think "What on earth is she on about?"  Anyway I just pointed the aerials out - it was then he said "Do you mean antennae?"   Ooops, mind you I did think it sounded a bit weird - but only a bit.  That was it then, it just set me off laughing - anyway an hour later I managed to stick the butterfly and it's aerials antennae to the card.

We have two sponsors for this month's Challenge - Floppy Latte and Rick St. Dennis.  The challenge runs until the beginning of August so do have a go because, as it is Stamp Anything Goes, the world is your lobster!!


Ingredients

8.25" x 5.75"  blank card
Papers from Create and Craft
Main image from "Floppy Latte's Digital Designs"
Spellbinders Gold Labels Four
Flowers and Leaves from WOC
Flowery beads (pearls and crystals)  on wire from stash
Copics and Promarkers
 
The lacy bit on the bottom of the card is part of the piece of paper!  I quite liked the look it gave and carefully cut it out from the piece of A4 - there were some flowers at the end so I chopped these orf!!!
 
I do hope you like my card and take part in this Challenge.  Thank you for leaving me any comments.  I know there are holidays and things to be taken at this time of year - ooooh I've just nipped back to Majorca for a second or three - so any time spent looking at my blog is especially appreciated.
 
Big hugs to you
 
SUE
