Beautiful Butterflies

Just last week I found a wonderful blog with some fantastic ideas. Her blog lead me to a Yahoo group of SU Demonstrators that LOVE to share their ideas.

They have a Butterfly challenge this week so I came up with this one.

I started with Basic Grey Cardstock. I also stamped "MOM" (from the Messages for Mom Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog) in Basic Grey, colored the white with an Apricot Appeal Stampin' Write Marker. I then ran it through the Big Shot with the Texture Folder...I apologize, I do not have my catalog with me to look up the names of the stamp set, texture folder or Big Shot Die Cut. I will update the blog with that information later. I used my Stampin' Pastels (chalks) to color the centers of the flower & leaf of the raised textures on the background. The butterflies are cut with the SU Butterfly Die Cut. I used up some retired DSP paper for them. Last but not least I added some sparkle to "MOM" with Dazzling Diamonds.

Hope you like it & would love to hear what you think.Posted by Picasa
