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.
