Sense of Time Butterflies

Well here, I go again with another card I made for Louisa, my Secret Sister, from Stampin_Up_In_Oz.

I tried to incorporate green into this card to give Louisa some ideas on how to use it. I am not normally a green person either, but trying to do things for a Secret Sister is just another way to challenge myself.

The Sense of Time stamp set was not available at the time I made this card, but I think that the wording is so appropriate for butterflies, as they have to "Live for Today" and "Hope for Tomorrow". In case you are wondering the Sense of Time stamp set has made it back into the current Idea Book and Catalogue! Three cheers for SU!®

Here is a close up of the butterfly. I stamped him in Stazon Black and then using my classic ink pads and blender pens coloured him it. It was so quick and easy!

Card: Certainly Celery, Tempting Torquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Certainly Celery, Tempting Torquoise, Pacific Point, Apricot Appeal (retired), Soft Suede
Tools: Paper Piercing tool and Mat Pack
Stamp sets: All A Flutter, Vintage Vogue, Sense Of Time.

Till next time, happy stamping...
