I am back today with another card using the Layers of Color retired Joyful Noise clear art stamp set.  This is the same butterfly I have used on my previous post - you can see it here

It looks a little bit different doesn't it and how do you like that flourish - divine!!  I have used it to create a frame around the edges of my card, lightly colouring with SU Chalks/Pastels, using a Blender Pen.

I have stamped the butterfly and cut off one wing, gluing down the body and popping up the remaining wing with foam tape.

It has been coloured with Chalks and had some shimmer added with Kindy Glitz

Add some Want2Scrap Pearls and it is finished, another quick and easy card, I am getting a little bit used to these - but will be back with some of my usual style soon, infact I am working on a number of projects for up and coming events and announcements - can't wait to show you at the right time!!

In the meantime, this card is for the following challenges:

  6. I love the use and blend of colours, I can feel another texture. Just a pity we cant see the challenges for real ;) who knows, one day - technology might progress that far. One reason I did enjoy ATCs - in their day.

  7. Amazing colours and love that swirl frameing pretty butterflys .
    Thanks for sharing on Make it Monday .

  8. Utter WOW again, Linda! Your style is so unique, and elevated, and (like I said on your previous card) *magical!* Are you sure there isn't some fairy dust sitting amongst your supplies? :-) This looks like it should decorate an illuminated manuscript!
