Butterfly Mk1

I'm playing along with The Paper Players, using their sketch which, unusually for me, I've stuck to pretty closely.  Apart from the obvious mutation of scalloped circle to butterfly:

I've used the colours from this week's ColourQ challenge:

The navy on my card is pearlised and I've cranked up the definition while editing the photo so it's making it look a bit speckled.  It's a disappointingly dull day here (I'm sure they promised us 21 degrees and sunny).  But on a brighter note, my craft room is coming along nicely and should be ready for action by the weekend :))

ETA: I've just realised that the Inkadinkado stamp is available at Simon Says Stamp so I can link up to their Wednesday challenge, as part of their STAMPtember extravaganza to use something that's available from the store.

  1. Mmmm, I'm thinking that the scallopped circle mutated rather well into this beautiful butterfly, Shirley, it's lovely, so pretty! Weather ... want some of our melting inducing 50+C? Anita :)

  2. Hi Shirley. Great interpretation of the sketch. LOVE the partial embossing to mimic the two panels - so creative! Loll xx
