Butterfly Kisses

Hey Bloggers, it's Thursday again so we've got a new challenge starting for you over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog.  This week our theme is 'Butterfly Kisses' and the prize is sponsored by Whiff of Joy Stamps.

For my DT card I've used a pretty little stamp which was in a magazine freebie set some time ago and is by Wee Stamps - isn't she a real cutiepie ? 

I've coloured my little fairy with Copics and given the flowers in her hair and the one on her dress a bit of bling using Stardust Stickles.  The image layer was cut out using an oval nestie then matted over a layer cut with a slightly larger scalloped oval nestie.

The bp is a scrap from my stash and I love all the sparkly bits in the design.  I used a small butterfly stamp from a Stampin'Up! set and SU! Peach Parfait ink to create the background panel on the right.  A Martha Stewart butterfly border punch created a pretty band across the centre and the butterflies were created using a SU! stamp and matching punch.

The sentiment was from the freebie stamp set which I cut out using another SU! punch after stamping using SU! Gumball Green ink.  Butterfly bodies were created using a Waco Pearlmaker Pen and I added a few faux pearls with the same pen on the image layer as a finishing touch.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project, do hop over to the CCT blog to check out the rest of the DT designs, I'm sure they will inspire you.

Thanks for dropping by here today, I really do appreciate you visiting.
