Just Add Ink #272 - Just Add Butterflies

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge, brought to you by Design Team Member Di, is Just Add Butterflies and with all the new butterfly sets in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue how could we not have a Just Add Butterflies challenge. 

The stamp set that I've used for the challenge is the hostess set, Floral Wings, and as I've said before you can get your hands on this set in two ways, either hold a qualifying Stampin' Up! party with me (must be over $250AUD in sales) or place a $250AUD order with me and you can then choose this set for free. Its as simple as that!


The cardstock used is Shimmery White and I love the subtle sparkle that it gives but it just doesn't show up that beautifully in my photos. If anyone has any tips on how to photograph the Shimmery White cardstock so see that beautiful sparkle I'd love to hear your tips.

The background is the new Brick Wall Embossing Folder. This is another one of the embossing folders that is quite large, 15.2cm x 15.2cm so you can emboss larger pieces of cardstock. YAY! Love that! 


 The colours used to layer the butterfly are Memento Tuxedo Black, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Gold. The gold body of the butterfly is actually from the set Watercolor Wings. I wanted give the butterfly some more definition and give it a bit of a body and that worked perfectly.


All finished off with some Gold Glimmer Paper, Gold Metallic Thread and Metallic Sequin Assortment.

Have a look at all the other wonderful butterfly creations from the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team and I can't wait to see your butterfly beauties!

Thanks for Stopping By!
