Butterfly Tree

I love this tree from the love and laughter stamp set by the angel company. It looks fall and in this setting almost spooky but not quite. Perfect for the season. I cut out an oval and then laid it over the cardstock and sprayed the opening with cornflower blue walnut ink. Then in the oval I cut out a 1" circle and laid the oval over the sprayed cardstock. First I took Brilliance Pearlescent Yellow and stippled inside the circle, then I added mango versamagic chalk ink and stippled it in. The edges have midnight blue versamagic ink applied. This is layered onto a rust cardstock. The yellow card is stamped with versamark ink with the curls and swirls stamp set by tac then sanded to bring out the design better. As far as I know this only works with DCWV white core cardstock. The one edge is torn. I used the crop-a-dile to punch the holes and fasten the eyelets in the corner. Some rust yarn is tied in the holes. All is mounted onto a navy A4 card. This card is for Danni's Flutterby Wednesday Challenge. Check out her blog at

I always look at this set and just can't bring myself to order it since I can't color it but it is just your card...has an intriguing quality to it. Wonderful! thanks for playing along with my flutter by challenge!
