The Butterflies are back with a brand new challenge over on the Butterfly blog.
The letter this time is S.
Here is the butterfly wheel to be used.
n.b. Shimmering blush = Pale Pink
and your Stitiching can be Real or faux.
Without further ado here are my inspiration cards for you as I am already running late, life keeps on getting in the way at the moment.
1st card using Version I which is over on the Butterfly Blog on the Card shapes tab which this link will take you straight to.
I have used all six elements of the wheel and chosen real stitching which I created by hand using a double sewing thread. The design papers are all by The Works and the sentiment is by Julie Hickey.
Below is the inside of the card opened up once the Slide and Lock mechanism has been removed.
The stamped image is again by Julie Hickey along with the sentiment. Coloured using my Graph'it pens
to match with the roses on the design paper.
2nd card using Version II and again using all six elements of the wheel and real hand stitching.
Design papers are all by The Works. Sentiment by Julie Hickey and the butterfly is by Memory Box 'Terrace" I have hand stitched round the butterflies edge and raised up with 3d pads (I use strips of cardstock oddments adhered together, usually 3 strips is enough which I have used here).
Inside of card where I have used more hand stitching and the pink butterflies were already punched out and in my oddments box waiting to be used.
I hope I have given you some ideas and that you will come and play in this challenge. The Butterflies have a brand new garden to play in which I will be posting up pictures for you to see shortly if I ever manage to get the planting finished that is as I keep changing my mind where the plants should go!
Hugs to you all
and continue to stay safe and well in this strange old world
we are now finding ourselves in.
