Butterfly on woodgrain


Hi everyone, I was inspired to make this card for a few challenges.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's an anything goes theme.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the theme is to make your own background.
I used the Darkroom Door Woodgrain stamp and distress ink to create this backdrop for the butterfly.

At Allsorts the theme is quick and simple. This card was quick to make as it involved a couple of stamps, fussy cutting, colouring and a couple of simple layers for the sentiment sticker.

Edited to add: I'm also linking up to the challenge at Uniko Studio where the theme is things with wings. (thanks Sarah).

Supplies:
Stamps: Darkroom Door woodgrain; Hero Arts butterfly (antique engravings).
Inks: versafine & clear ep; distress; inktense pencils.
Other: brads, stickles, bling and sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
enjoy the rest of your week.
