Chocolate Baroque Guest D.T Spot.

You cannot believe how thrilled I was to be asked to do this ......this was such a hard decision to make not to say yes that was easy but which stamp to use, indeed what combination of stamps to use. In the end after much trial and error, I used and old favourite,  Glenda may hate me for saying this but I am a believer in if you feel happy with it then use it. I really love this stamp I have had Butterfly Dreams UA4SP0353 for a few years I think depending on the colour-way you can use it for male and female alike in fact this has just gone to my Brother in Law for his Birthday tomorrow. He has just bought a new house and is renovating the house and garden.

I inked the stamp with Black Versafine and taking a 7x7 piece of Centura Pearl card and stamping on the matt side. I then masked the sides using low tack tape and made a mask for the butterfly and coloured the background using distress inkpads. The colours I used were Barn door, Squeezed Lemonade, and Mowed Lawn. Then using Berry pro-maker carefully colour the seed heads and put a circle around the outline of the flowers.The larger Butterfly was a mixture of Cyan and Agean blue the small butterfly was Orange. I then removed the masking tape and stamped the ART with everything from Artistic Affirmations , and Imagine from Artistic Expressions. Along the side and bottom of the card to finish a little ribbon. I hope you like it.
