Garden Whimsey Butterflies........Again!

I just love this Garden Whimsey Set from Stampin Up. I saw a lovely card made on splitcoaststampers site using the 2tone butterfly idea and I just knew I wanted to case this....

I stamped the whimsey butterfly in versamagic pumpkin pie and added a touch of purely pomergranate around the edges on the orange card. When it was dry I cut out the butterfly and went all over the butterfly with versamark and then crystal embossing powder and set it with the heat gun. It curls the wings....

I used Blue Bayou and Soft Sky for this version.

Both cards are half a piece of card folded in half. Then the lighter colour was stamped using Tres Chic background stamp...Love it. I sponged a bit around the edge and stamped the butterfly in the lighter ink, a few times to build the background up.

I added some double stitched ribbon and a designer punch. I layered this punch up with some tiny tags and circles from cuttlebug. Finally I stamped the cute ladybird and cut her out and mounted her on top. A few little extras like the cheeky clips, wool and brads were added to finish the cards.

Have a great day,
Jenny:-) xx
