Butterflies Abound

Hi Y'all,
I received an order from Quietfire Design a few days ago. Among the goodies was some absolutely gorgeous Kanban decorative papers. I wanted to do something with the butterfly paper that wouldn't obscure too much of the pattern so decided on a pocket and tag card.

The base card is 5x7". I created the pocket using strips of the "waste" of a sheet of popdots and black cardstock. The layer of Kanban Sparkle Glaze Farfalla Beige was mounted at an angle for a sense of movement. The word Butterfly was stamped on white cardstock and cut out using Spellbinders Fancy Tags. The stamp actually has a lovely flourish on the bottom of the "f" but that wouldn't fit the tag so I taped over the flourish when inking the stamp to remove that portion. Brilliance Pearlescent Purple was stippled around the word.

The saying stamp (Quietfire Design) was stamped on a manilla tag using Brilliance Graphite Black ink and irridescent embossing powder. Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink was stippled around the saying. Then the two sizes of butterflies (Quietfire Design) were added using same ink and embossing powder. The tag was edged by rubbing with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple Dew Drop inkpad. Purple eyelash and yarn fibers were added for a finishing touch.

There is a very nice selection of Kanban papers to be found at Quietfire Design so hop on over to take a look and drool a bit.

Thanks for looking. Hoping you have a day full of spring butterflies.
