This card features the new individual cling stamp by Chocolate Baroque called Butterfly Dress. It is gorgeous, dreamy and so versatile.
I stamped the image onto a piece of bleed-proof paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with Graph 'It alcohol markers. The extra sunflowers are from the July Fairy DL stamp sheet, also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. Then I masked the images to get the flowers to overlap. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Dreams A4 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Deep Lagoon. I also, very lightly, inked the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Ink for a softer finish.
Here's a close up of the Butterfly Dress project. With a sharp craft knife I cut around the wings of the butterflies to expose the blue layering card stock below. The butterflies look like they are about to take flight...
For shimmer and shine, I used Stickles Stardust and Wink of Stella Clear brush tip pen on the butterflies and flowers respectively. And to finish, a few teeny weeny bling on the middle of the orange sunflowers.
Butterfly Dress is undeniably a gorgeous image, which can be worked in so many different ways. Cutting around the wings adds dimension without unnecessary bulk and the wings can be flattened down for mailing.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments in my previous posts. I haven't done much visiting or commenting this weekend - so sorry about that. Regular readers know that Rosie, our furbabe, has cancer. She is such a valiant trooper and fought back courageously for the past two years. Last Friday, we were told by the vet that Rosie's latest X-Rays are not encouraging. It could be days or weeks... no one knows. For now she appears to be ok and coping well with her meds. I want to spend as much time as I can with Rosie. Whatever time she can spare, I'll take it. It was a sad weekend... and sadder days lay ahead.
Hug your pets. Hold them, cuddle them and snuggle up close. These moments are precious. Treasure them. Have a beautiful week, friends!
