All a Flutter

These cards were CASE'd from the talented Aly Adcock (she doesn't have a blog - yet, thanks for letting me post Aly). She had created a stunning framed picture with her design. I used it to create a set of four cards in different colours.


This set uses the En Francais Background Stamp in Sahara Sand and the All of a Flutter single stamp in black StazOn. I masked the butterfly and watercoloured them, I also added crystal effects to them (but you can't really see it in the photos).

I used Confetti White cardstock (have only just discovered this - where have I been). I found it handles the watercolouring much better than Whisper White.

I also did the inside with some script from the background stamp in the corners, sponging and the butterfly in Sahara Sand.
