Black & Yellow Butterfly


Hi, my plans for lots of crafting this weekend got slowed down when my heat gun died!
It's one I bought at least 15 years ago, so instead of crafting I was scouring the internet for a replacement. 
After my cuttlebug my heat gun is probably my most used tool. I use it for wet embossing and drying inky projects, I'm too impatient to wait! 

I had this social butterfly from Penny Black stamped and fussy cut, so I coloured it with inktense pencils to suit the challenge at The Card Concept, to create a project using black, grey, yellow and white. My card is in the clean and simple category.


 Sentimental Sundays has a theme of things with wings, it closes in a little while so I'm just scraping in!
Addicted to Stamps  is to make your mark. Create a project using pencils, markers, etc.

Materials used:
Penny Black stamp, versafine ink and clear embossing powder; inktense pencils; MFT flourish die; iced spruce distress ink; sentiment sticker.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and may your heat gun keep on working!
