An Irish Blessing

Hello everyone, I have been enjoying working with the beautiful Butterfly Dress cling mounted stamp so much this month, that I have another card using this stamp to show you today. I decided to incorporate a bit of an Irish theme into my card, so used a palette of mainly greens to create my card.

I started my background, by adding Memento Pear Tart ink to a piece of scrapbook paper through a Prima Mask using a stencil brush, and then added some script using a stamp from the Mini Scripts stamp set. I used Memento Bamboo Leaves to ink the stamp. I stamped the main image onto a die cut oval of scrapbook paper, and again onto a spare piece of the paper. I coloured the images with Polychromos pencils. I decoupaged the butterflies from the spare image onto the main image. I added some of the flowers, along with some shamrock style Crealie die cuts to a sentiment taken from the Patchwork Butterfly stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

I love the greens in this with the gorgeous way you have coloured the butterflies of her dress against the orangey-peachey colours of the flowers. What really caught my attention though is the mottled pinkness of the scrapbook paper & the way it echoes the soft flesh tones of the image's skin.

What a lovely card. I love the stencilled butterflies and the way you have stamped the script through, that works perfectly. The colours you have chosen for the butterfly dress are so lovely and warm. The gold on the butterflies really glows. A really pretty and skilful design. Elaine xxx
