A Trio of butterflies

Evening all

Thought I would share with you a card that I have made using a Kanban stamp set called A trio of butterflies.

As I have said above the butterfly stamp is an A5 stamp set from Kanban and is called "A Trio of Butterflies" I managed to get my set of Ebay for £4.95 which was not a bad price to pay for such a gorgeous stamp.  The swirls stamp below is also a Kanban A5 stamp set the same price as the butterflies one and again was purchased from Ebay.

I have cut the butterflies to 9cm x 9.5cm as the stamp itself is not square and distressed it with the Tea dye distress ink.  Believe it or not the card colours are from one of the packs of card that Lidl sell occasionally for £1.99 for 25 sheets of different colour card.  Its weight is 270gsm and works well for layering as well as for a good sturdy card base.

I have tried to match the inside of the card to the outside and think it has worked quite well.

Thank you for visiting my blog and any comments would be gratefully appreciated.

Happy Crafting
