Lilac butterflies card






It's week 73 over at 'Less is More' and this time
 it's a recipe, which is .................
 'Paper Piecing'
I read that as 'paper piercing' at first lol, must look
 more clearly next time ! Luckily I thought of an idea
 quite quickly this time, I do hope my mojo has
 reappeared. I printed a DSB digi butterfly I have
had for a while now.After chalking that image with
a nice lilac shade I stuck that to the card base.
Then  I printed another butterfly onto a sheet of card.
I had already printed the card with PP 'Washed Damask' lilac
 pattern. It's very pale the pattern so not sure it shows
up that well here.Also I glamour dusted it  which hasn't
 helped you see it, I do like my glitter though. I used my
circle nesties to cut an aperture in another piece of card.
I then matted and 3d'd  that and 3d'd the paper pieced
 butterfly just inside. The stamped sentiment is a
 'Jane's script' one. I almost left the first butterfly plain
 and I think it may have been a better idea now I look
 again. Oh well I will remember that for next time. I
 added a couple of clear gems to complete the card.I
 spent a good few hours today creating a few new 
watermarks  for myself in PSP. Much tearing of
 hair too I fear !!!
ps. See my previous post if you want to see pics of
 my daughter climbing Ben Nevis for her 40th birthday !
Also new pics of our lovely grandsons above right too, aren't
 they so cute..........well I suppose I am a tad biased lol.Charlie
 has a little bee toy strapped to his wrist which he loves.
