Emerging Butterfly

 Emerging butterfly

Yet another card from me which ended up looking totally different to the original plan! But never mind that, I ended up with a card which fits the Less is More challenge this week to use Lime Green and Black.

I began by masking the sides of the vertical strip with post-it notes. In the strip I repeatedly stamped a flower from Delicate Florals then sponged over the top getting gradually darker towards the bottom. The Soft Wings butterfly was stamped five times in grey before the final one and the sentiment were added in black.


Stamps: Soft Wings, Delicate Florals, Thinking of You (Penny Black)
Ink: Memento Pear Tart, London Fog & Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)

  3. Love it! I LOVE your style Heather. You are my inspiration all day long… What a beautiful day when I see on my computer “the last from Heather”, it’s make me happy for a long time. Like you can see, my English is so so… but I am sure you can understand what I say. I have built on my web site, a board which is: inspirés par Heather Telford or inspiration by Heather Telford. Thank you so much Heather. You are the best one!!!

    You have really captured the movement – I get the feeling that if you blink, the butterfly and even the greeting might be gone when you open my eyes.

    That is a truly magnificent card – I am awestruck at the way the butterfly is literally ‘taking off’ from the card! Wow – I love it and I’m going to have a go at this technique. Thanks for sharing Heather. I think it’s made so much more amazing because of the few colours used for the challenge. Fabulous :)x
