Uniko Butterflies

I can't believe a whole month has already passed us by this year. Last year I bought several new stamps and due to everything that happened over the past few months I've not got round to playing with them yet, so I've put them all in a single box on the top of the cupboard and I'm going to work my way through them before they get put in the craft cupboard and forgotten about.

Here's the first which is from Uniko called 'English Country Garden Butterflies' and which I stamped in two layers - first the solid butterfly with a lilac Memento ink and then the outline detail stamp with white embossing powder. I used my old Xcut nesting heart dies to cut the card and fixed it all with sticky pads and finally added a silver peel-off sentiment. As it's such a pale colour with so much white it was really hard to photograph and this was the best I could get.



I'm entering this in the following challenges

Uniko challenge 'something old, something new + optional twist love'


Inkspirational challenge 'word prompt attachment'



Thanks for popping by today and I hope you're all ready for the weekend and fingers crossed the weather plays nice for us.

It’s a very pretty Stamp and it works really well with the hearts. I too am trying to work my way through unlinked stamps but it was my birthday last week and I’ve got even more new ones now......not that I’m complaining :) Sandra x

It's understandable that you are feeling behind with crafting, Andrea, and I like your idea of not putting the NBUS in the cupboard until you've used it! This design is feminine and romantic and fabulous!! Hugs, Darnell
