Butterflies

This card is based on the sketch at the Clean & Simple challenge 297, but by a happy accident I’ve just discovered that it also qualifies me for this week’s LIM challenge which is to use something recycled. Possibly not CAS enough for LIM, though!

The backing paper is from my stash. The butterflies are cut from the reverse side of some of my previous stamping mistakes! That’s the first bit of recycling. The butteflies were stamped then coloured in Promarker to match the backing paper. The white sections have had Anita’s Clear Gloss applied to add a bit more dimension, and the largest butterfly has had clear Wink of Stella applied although the photos don’t show it.

The greeting is also stamped, and the second bit of recycling is the ribbon, cut from the inside of a blouse and coloured with the same Promarker.

Backing Paper: K-Ology Addison by K & Company
Butterflies: Sizzix/Hero Arts Framelits
Cardstock: Limetree Crafts
Ink: Memento Paris Dusk
Promarker: Pear Green
Greeting: Papertrey Ink
