Fanciful Butterfly Flower


I have been very busy again, with barely any time to stamp! I played a little hooky this morning since I wasn't feeling real spiffy, but I did stamp one card. I am demoing the technique of stamping on vellum, then coloring it from the back, at my downline meeting this weekend, so I wanted to have a couple samples to show. I had stamped this butterfly a couple days ago, so I incorporated it into today's SCS Sketch Challenge, which can be seen here. I know butterflies don't grow on stems, but hey, it's my stampin' world, so that's why it's called a "Fanciful Butterfly Flower"! This also fulfills the Color Challenge from Tuesday, which was to use Basic Gray, Soft Sky & Whisper White.
It's a fairly simple, straightforward card, not much stamping, actually! Hope you enjoy it and your day!

Very nice! I can't wait to learn the technique. I do use vellum much, so this will be cool :-)

Hi Leanne, I always forget about vellum. Thanks for the inspiration on this card. I will have to try it.
