Evening folks.
An extra post this week 'cos I've not gone to my craft class with Di as we are still at home, hubster has a bad back so didn't want to drive over. :(
Anyway I had a little crafty time after my Daughter and Grandson went home after a lovely visit earlier today. I think they took the sunny weather back with them as it is now rather dull and a little chilly. Log burner and a bit of telly later I think!

Anyhow here is the card I made after they left.

I made it with a couple of challenges in mind. 
I'd thought about the card I would do for Less is More's challenge this week but wasn't sure about the colours I was going to use until I saw the photo over at Card Concept. I'm not sure which of their categories it fits into, I always struggle to say. Anyway it's CAS and it's a one layer card. I was influenced by the chevrons and the bright pink splashes of colour as well as the black and grey upholstery.
I stamped a butterfly in black then masked and inked some splatters in Picked Raspberry DI through a Tim Holtz stencil. I then wanted to suggest the chevrons so I made a stencil using diecuts and added some Fun Flock and Weathered Wood DI. 

OK, I suppose I better go and see what the dog is barking at!

  2. Love your card Jules. The butterfly is beautiful and the colours really appeal to me. Great splatter too!! Hope his back is feeling easier soon. Martin came in limping at lunchtime with heel spur...he's a terrible patient so I shall make myself scarce tomorrow!! xx

  3. The butterfly looks beautiful on the splatted background , great card.

  4. Love your card! The splashes of color against the black/white/gray is perfect. Thank you for joining us at The Card Concept!

  5. A great take on all three challenges, Jules! Love those crisp pinks against the grey chevrons - a very pleasing card!

  6. A totally gorgeous and elegant splattered card Julie.
    Love all the detail and striking butterfly image.
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

  17. Hm, I'd almost call it Freestyle Collage, just done with all stamping. Whatever, it's wonderful.
