Shiny Butterfly


I am sharing a card with you that I have made with a piece of left over yupo that I had used with alcohol inks and some gold foil.

I die cut the lovely butterfly from Tonic's wings and things collection in gold mirri card and layered it over the alcohol ink.  I placed this on top of a card base on which I had inked up my geometric circle stencil in Seedless Preserve, Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender distress ink.  I added a gold embossed sentiment from Crafters Companion's Flutterby range.

I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes and at Less is More where we are using scraps from our bit box.  I will also link up at the Anything Goes with Dies challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

The geometric circle stencil is available in my Folksy store.
