Things with Wings Inchies

Hi everyone.  One more Inchie card before the CAS Mix Up September challenge closes in three days.


These small butterflies are part of a larger stamp set called "Winged Things".  I stamped them in black and heat embossed in clear ... over top of a stencil monoprint that was in my stash.  I used distress inks to colour the butterflies and then added thin white frames and popped them up on my card front.  Rather than having the four squares layout, I opted to use my sentiment in place of one of the squares.

Close-up ...

Thanks for coming by for a visit!

Sweet butterflies and beautiful colors, Loll! Love how they look on the monoprint background! Having the sentiment complete the larger square is a perfect idea!

Sorry for not commenting on your recent blog posts - just so busy on my holiday and using the iPad for things like that is a pain. Love this inchies card - such beautiful backgrounds behind those sweet little butterflies.

What a delightful card Loll - love those wee butterflies on the stencil print, and using the sentiment not a fourth square is brilliant. Love the wee hint of dimension with the layering of the image panels

What a delightful and pretty butterfly inchie card, Loll! I love that you stamped the butterflies on the stencil monoprint. It's so unique and interesting! Using the forth inchie space for your sentiment is a great idea.

I love the transparency look of the wings, Loll, and how the sentiment fits perfectly into the fourth space.
