Floral & Fauna Delight

Here is some more inspiration to show you for the current Butterfly Challenge
#99 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter D which runs for another week.

First card uses  the colour Dirt (Brown) , Die cut and Butterflies. The  pre coloured image is by Hunkydory from their Little Book of 'Vintage Lace'.  The die cut element is the Stitched Rectangles Frame by Crafts-Too and the Dirt colour is the card base, also  the die cut frame. There is also some dark salmon and denim blue on the top butterfly.  I have used my favourite (acetate) to give the appearance of a picture frame and raised it up with 3D pads giving it dimension so I  used all the elements of the  wheel bar one. The gold sticker sentiments were from my stash.


Second Card uses the colour Denim Blue , Digi image  and Butterfly. I have used a stamp set by Studio light JBS 03 which I have coloured using my Marvy Le Plume II pens and a white gel marker.
I have used a white card to make the base card and adhered a rectangle of Denim blue card stock before attaching the  image. The sentiment is a  digi by Digi Stamp Boutique from their Birthday Mr Bear set. The sentiment is actually a lot bigger when it comes in the file but I resized it to fit the card front.(That's what I like about using digis as you can resize them and flip them over too to suit your needs.)


Third card uses all seven elements of the wheel just to show it can be done. 
1. Butterfly.  (Metal Embellishment.)
2. Dirt. (Dark brown cardstock and I have coloured the girls hair brown.)
3. Denim Blue.  (Ribbon bow, gems on butterfly and the sash on the girls dress.)
4. Dark salmon for the base card.
5. Dimension (digi image is raised up on 3D pads, bow and butterfly give added dimension.)
6. Die cut  (Scallop edge on brown card.)
7. Digi image is by A Day For Daisies 'Gathering flowers'.

I used my promarkers and graph'it pens to colour the image and then gave a light dusting of Pearlescent chalks over the top which doesn't show in the picture but gives a nice overall sheen under the light.  The die cut is a scallop edge die by Diesire and the sentiment is a rub on. Gems and butterfly from my stash. 


You have until  next Tuesday 24th to play along .

You are amazing with the unique-ness of each of these beautiful cards that fit your challenge so well. I love each one, and am especially taken with that gorgeous Iris & butterfly. The imagery on #1 looks so dimensional too, and very elegant. The clever metal butterfly looks very pretty with the lovely flower gathering lady in her garden, and the loopy border is a nice trim against the color of your card base. Liked the idea of dusty the pearly chalks over the finished product, bet it does give such a nice sheen. Hope the rain & lightning soon goes away for ya'll. TFS & Hugs
