Card Swap November 2016

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Stampin' Up! Butterfly thinlets, Basic Grey cardstock, Elegant Butterfly punch

The theme for the November card swap was Butterflies and Rainbows. I had no idea how I was going to stick to this theme until I saw this brilliant technique from Jennifer McGuire. I think this is the third month in a row I've used this technique, yes it is quite addictive!  Unfortunately as most people were really busy in November we decided to not to go ahead with the swap, which was good news for me as it meant I got to keep mine.

Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquiose, Marina Mist, Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delights, Tangerine Tango cardstock

I could have adhered the large butterfly on top of the grey cardstock but I decided to do it the hard way so the butterfly was actually flush with the grey cardstock. It took ages putting all the little grey pieces into the butterfly wings, so glad I did though as I think it looks stunning. I finished it off with my wink of Stella pen to give it some sparkle.

Rainbow colours, butterflies

I did have three rhinestones on both of the small butterflies I have only just noticed that one has fallen off the left hand one.
