Let's hope she doesn't check my blog....

This card is for a fabulous friend, who is having a special birthday this week. I know that she doesn't check my blog unless I tell her to, so I should be okay posting this a couple of days early!

Anyway it's that fantastic black magic technique again! Basically I stamped a section of black paper with white and coloured all the butterflies in and then checked which area I wanted as my background! It worked really, really, really well! Or at least I think so!

I don't think a butterfly card looks any good without a 3D one to make it pop! I used my classic ink pads and a blender pen to colour these in.

Do you also love the sentiment? It's from the NEW stamp set, Perfect Punches. This is one of the sets we were given, yes given, at Convention! And we've had to keep it under wraps for months. Talk about painful!

Card: Elegant Eggplant, Taken With Teal (retiring), Basic Black, Pale Plum (retiring), Whisper White
Ink: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum (retiring)
Tools: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Watercolour pencils
Embellishments: Vintage Brads (retiring)
Stamp Sets: All A Flutter, Perfect Punches

On the off chance, that my friend has popped onto my blog, HAPPY BIRTHDAY STACEY!

Till next time, happy stamping...
