Sketches by Tamara - Butterflies

The Sketches by Tamara challenge this week is:

And this came together so easily! Again, scraps and left over bits of card in my stash were used - the yellow / green strips are from It's Funky Too and the pink strips are from Huge Funky Love. They have sort of been randomly cut but not too much to look out of place. Edges have been inked with pink or green ink and then worn black as the colours were a bit too bright for my liking.

The butterflies were a freebie pack from the Do Crafts magazine an issue or two ago and I thought they were too pretty just to sit in the packet!

Get me with the fancy arty shot eh?! The lighting was a bit pants yesterday so I struggled a little - believe it or not, but these photos were taken in front of a huge french window at 1:30pm with white card reflectors and still the lighting is flat. Just can't win!
The sentiment stamp was a 4 block one from Mad About Cards - the sentiment is in 4 different fonts.
There was one butterfly left over from the pack and I used that on another challenge - will show that in a day or two!
  • Backing paper: It's Funky Too and Huge Funky Love from Funky Hand
  • Sentiment: 4 sided stamp from Mad About Cards
  • Butterflies: Freebie Dovecraft embellishments from a recent Do Crafts magazine
