Winged things 1

Hello Heather Telford

I have more Penny Black prettiness to share today, this time of the creative die variety. There are so many beautiful dies in the new release and this butterfly is one I will probably reach for again and again.

The butterfly on the card above is two layers but cut from three different pieces of cardstock. The underside of the butterfly is a solid red butterfly cut using the ‘flights of fancy’ die. I used the co-ordinating ‘swirling wings’ creative die to cut a lacy butterfly from white cardstock and from watercoloured cardstock. I kept the frame of the watercoloured butterfly for a card I’ll share tomorrow but popped out all the inserts and inserted them into the white lacy butterfly. I splattered some of the same watercolours onto the white card panel and die cut two sprays of flowers with the ‘flower frolic’ die. The little curly ‘hello’ is from a set of three called ‘doodles’ which will be wonderful to use.

Make sure you visit the Penny Black blog and facebook this week; there are giveaways along with all the new inspiration.

    I love the butterfy dies and the diecut flowers coming in from the edge look so pretty and then the finishing touch of the curly sentiment. A really beautiful card Heather. x

    Heather, it’s lovely! I had to read the butterfly layers 2 or 3 times. LOL The water color pieces really pop inside the white outline. I will definately have to try this.
