Butterfly Flourish card made for Imagination Craft's show on Create & Craft T.V.

Good evening Peeps,

Hope you've all had a wonderful day.   I'm just relaxing now after a very busy day.   Shopping, then we took our grandson out for lunch at a garden centre and I managed to fit in visits to two craft shops, brilliant!   I bought a few craft goodies and I can't wait to have a play with them tomorrow lol!  when I hope I will have a quieter day, crafting and chilling out, listening to my music cds.   Thank you to those of you who visited and commented on last night's post.   It means a great deal to me.

Tonight I am sharing another card which I made for Imagination Craft's show on Create & Craft T.V. last Friday.    For this I have used Imagination Craft's fabulous new  Starlight Paints, which are turning out to be a firm favourite of mine and by all accounts, yours too, as they sold out very quickly, not to worry though as I'm told they will be back in stock by the end of this week.

Fold the ready creased white card down the centre, making a 7"x7" base card.   Matt a smaller piece of black card on the white, then cut a smaller piece of white card and paint all the edges with the White gold Starlight Paint, ( no need to waste paint on the whole card, as only the edges will be seen.)   Matt this onto the black.

Paint a piece of white card approximately five and a half inches by two and three quarter inches and paint with the orange oxidation Starlight paint.

Cut a piece of black card five and a half inches by two and a quarter inches.   Glue the orange card to the left hand side of the gold card, nearer to the bottom of the gold card and glue  the black card nearer to the top right, leaving some gold card showing.


Cut a piece of black card and lay the daisy curl stencil onto it and spread the golden green Sparkle Medium over the design, using the metal spatula.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.   Matt this onto the base card.

Colour the Art Cutz butterfly and flourishes with the white gold Starlight Paint/   Lay the butterfly onto some black card and draw around the shape.   Cut this out and paint with the orange oxidation paint..   When dry glue the butterfly onto the painted card so the orange paint shows through the wings.   Glue the butterfly to the top right of the base card.


Glue the flourishes to the bottom left corner, adding some small black, punched circles, which have been painted with the orange oxidation paint..Paint some black card with the orange oxidation paint and die-cut 2 large, 2 medium, and 2 small flowers from it, using the Spellbinders dies.

Add three green gems to the top left and bottom right and two to the body of the butterfly and there we have it, one finished card.   Hope you like this one.   Take care of yourselves and I will be back soon.

Thanks again for following my blog.   See you soon.
