After a dodgy start it's been a lovely spring day today, we will probably count the cost of it tomorrow with a touch of frost.
There is definately spring in the air as our first lambs have come down from the lambing pens this afternoon, 12 ewes and their lambs all frolicking in the sun, such a happy site. I didn't take my phone when I went to look so no photos. :( Must remember to get a photo or two tomorrow.
Any way I have been in te craft room having a play as I was inspired by the card over at Muse by Shona. I loved the soft stamped circles with the tiny hearts. I had it in my mind to use butterflies as the challenge at Less is More is 'Wings'
After a couple of false starts I ended up with this.
I loved the soft embossing Shona used and it was a little tricky to photograph on mine, so I took a few others to show it off better, not sure if they do!
This is Shona's lovely card
In the end after trying various butterfly stamps I went with some punched butterflies mounted on Silver Pearl embossed discs and diecut circles. The greeting is from Clearly Besotted and the stamped butterflies from Do Crafts. I kept the colours roughly the same, colouring the outlined butterflies with matching Copics.
Here are some more views of my card.
The first shows the pearly embossed background discs and the second the diecut front.
OK, it's getting a tad late now so I will finish and get off to bed, early start in the morning as AL will have to go check on the lambs.
