Pretty Butterflies ...

Jean sent me this gorgeous set of butterfly stamps and I couldn't wait to use them on a card.

I used the biggest of the butterflies which measures about 7.5 cmc wide. I stamped in black Memento ink and coloured with Copic Markers

I just used the darker colours in the centre fading out to the lighest on the edges of his wings

I coloured two of the same butterflies, cut the wings from the second and glued them on top of the first, curling the edges of the wings up

I used a second stamp from Jean, the For You greeting block by Purple Onion Designs. I didn't have the right colour inkpad so I used a Stampin Up marker to colour all over the stamp before printing.

I cut it into a tag shape by drawing around the lid off a jar of flowers :)

I kept the design of the card really simple by leaving off any patterned paper and getting all the colour from the coordinating ribbon, cardstock, ink and the coloured butterfly

I used:
Purple Onion Greeting block stamp
