Today’s project features some masking and inking. I used sticky notes to create a wonky square on my card and applied Shaded Lilac Distress Ink into it with cut n dry foam. I then formed the next shape and used Peacock Feathers and then the final square and used Scattered Straw. I then outlined each of my wonky squares with a deliberately wibbly line. I added a little extra detail at each of the corners and a border around the larger square to match.
Next I cut out butterflies from white card I have used all Memory Box Dies:
Moonlight and Kaleidoscope Butterfly
Pippi and Isabella Butterfly
Darla and Vivienne Butterfly
I happen to be lucky enough to have all these butterflies in my collection – but if you only had one – you could just cut three of the same design.
I worked out which butterfly I wanted on which square and then what colour I was going to use to colour them. I’ve used the same three inkpads, but I think on the lilac one I had a bit of purple on my foam which deepened up the colour a little. They all looked a little flat, so I added just a little hint of walnut stain to all of them to give some depth of colour.
They are all stuck just in the centre of the butterflies so that they have some dimension.
I felt it needed just a little something in the two white corners – all my corner dies were way too big, but by using the Tessatina border and cutting it down it was perfect.
We stock lots of different Memory Box dies – including the butterflies – and I know we currently have the two largest butterflies in stock. Click here for the dies available
