LOC Wonderful Wings

Who doesn't love butterflies - I would love to see one like this in our garden, we actually encourage them to our garden with plants that attract them and have seen more already this year than we have for a long time!!  This beautiful one is from the New Release sets from Layers of Color called Flutterescent and as you can see they are certainly life like.  These images are drawn by the owner Laura who is passionate about Nature and it shows in her work!
 


I have used the embossing folder 'Victoria' to emboss the gorgeous DP from K&Company that I won in some Blog Candy form the lovely Abby...I love the colours and used it for my inspiration for this butterfly, which has been coloured with chalks and popped up onto an oval scalloped Nestie which has been sponged with distressing ink!



I added  a row of gorgeous lace along the bottom along with the sentiment that comes with this set, sponged around the edges and popped it onto black CS.  The final touch was the yummy flowers, again part of the Blog Candy from Abby (thank you Abby I have treasured each item) and the half pearls added to the centre.



I think this image does most of the work itself - these cards just seem to create themselves and I am along to 'steer the ship'....I love the end result, so feminine and pretty - it is very different for me to end up with something like this as I usually use more vintage and 'earthy' tones...but I am loving these!  I would encourage you to make the time to pop over to Layers of Color and see what creative delights are over there - you will enjoy your visit and be inspired - maybe even leave a comment or two if there is something there that 'grabs' you!

Thank you for visiting today, I have enjoyed being able to have your company today - thank you for your comments, they mean so much to me!  It is a beautiful day here today and I am enjoying just 'chilling out'!  God bless you!

  5. Wow,Linda, this card is sensational. That butterfly stamp is diffinitely on my wish list that I hope to get after Christmas. Having to use my stamp budget for Christmas gifts for this month, but I do love this stamp. As I am celebrating this time of thanksgiving, I am very thankful for your friendship and your encouragement to me as a rubberstamp artist. I value your opinions and I thank you for the opportunity you gave me recently to serve as a guest design team member for Layers of Color. I know it only happened by your sweet recommendation. How blessed I am to have a friend that lives half the way around the world from me! I love how God connects us through the Body of Christ no matter where we are!!
