Rhapsody in Violet...

Happy Monday,

More inspiration from my Bee Balm collection today using a mix of dies form the background through to the butterflies.

The background uses the Bee Balm background cut 4 times and rotated.


I stamped the Bee Balm flowers then cut these out with the mathvcing die before shading them with Violet Izink pigment ink.
















I shaded the swirl leaves and added these first with the flowers arranged on top in the centre of the piece. I cut the backings for the butterflies using card covered in double sided adhesive sheet.  I cut the filigree butterfly dies and added these on top before sprinkling Stickles dry glitter over the exposed adhesive.


Ingredients:

Card - Crafts Too Linen Card in violet & Limetree crafts Gold dust card.

Dies -
JND Bee Balm Background
JND Bee Balm Flowers
JND Large Butterflies
JND Swirl Leaves

Stamps -
JND Bee Balm stamp set.


Enjoy...

    Hello John,Beautiful card John. Love the colour and design.
    Sorry I haven't been able to comment for a couple of weeks as I was in Fuerteventura and Bloglovin was in Spanish. I'm now back home and still getting some things in Spanish.
    Hope you are having a Bank Holiday rest.
    Cheers to all.
