So pretty!

Hello, the craft room has been a bit quiet this week, but I've eventually managed another play with one of my new dies.  I loved seeing the samples from Creativation  and have cased one of the cards as I need a Birthday card for and older friends 80th Birthday at the end of the month.

I painted it with Distress Inks, which didn't take much doing and layered it over an Oxide inked background.  I've stamped and distressed the Tattered Butterfly, which was cut on a play night with my crafty friend Diane, (thank you)  layered this on some seam binding that was coloured with Peeled Paint.

A short post, but thanks for calling in.
Have a great weekend.
Avril xx

Avril, your lovely piece just screams Springtime, what a wonderful sight! I forget that I have a few botanical coverplate dies and hope I remember to use them for a few Springtime cards. Thank you for the inspiration! xoxo
