Butterfly Collage

I found this coloured butterfly image when I was tidying up and knew that it would go beautifully with one of the Essence of Nature papers.  This paper has been bleached out by the camera’s flash a bit, but you can still see the soft greens and golden yellows that tie in so well with the daisy butterfly image.  The stamped image has been coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils on watercolour paper and the decoupaged butterfly has a touch of stickles on it.

I got some more pics of Smokey yesterday, so hope to get those up for you soon.  I have photographic proof that rabbits eat leylandii hedges!

    Another really lovely card – this is one of my favourite stamps as it looks really effective and can be used for many occasions.
    I have been playing with my CD and am liking the Forest section a lot. The green swirly leaves are my favourite (this week) LOL!

  6. Fab butterfly Glenda !!

  7. dont know why but butterflies always make me dreamy, beautiful card Glenda hugs SuzeJo x

  8. What a beauty! The butterfly plates are stunning, the elements are big enough for the focal point just on their own. I’m envious of the colouring – I try but don’t get such great restults – I’ll keep trying!

    Bunneh pics are lovely, I don’t know how you manage to get time for crafting with all those lovely pics you get.

    Best wishes.

  9. Beautiful! I do love that image, and the butterfly is perfect. And, as you say, it goes so well with the CD papers.

    Hi Glenda
    I chose the daisy butterfly collage plate as my Graphicus Guild gift so I am just off to find it and then browse those beautiful CDs to see what I can come up with.

    That is a really beautiful card Glenda I love the butterfly plate which I was lucky enough to receive as a subscription gift from The Craft Stamper and have made a few cards from it.

  14. This is beautiful Glenda, I’m loving the CD, just need more hours in the day to play. Not having to go to work would help but then I’d not have pennies to spend on crafty stash
