Good morning and welcome from Elizabeth with the first of the posts from the new International Design Team for 2017/18.

I absolutely adore the new Big Butterfly #2 and combined with the new A6 Peony  it's just perfect.

I started by making a master board using Coastal Walk, Marshmallow, Olive Waistcoat and Lime Marmalade Cottage Garden Paints 

I stamped out the Butterfly once, and the Peony and Ferns a couple of times in Black Versafine. Then heat embossed them using a fine detail clear embossing powder. After they had cooled, I cut out all the elements.

I then diluted some of the gorgeous Blue Luscious Powder and brushed over the top of the Ferns, the Butterfly wings and to create shadows on the Peony's.

Once the Luscious had dried it was just a case of creating a design with the pieces onto a C5 card blank that had been covered with a piece of vintage music paper.

I added glitter to the centre of the Peony's, splashes of diluted Blue Luscious and of course I can't resist a few sequins.

I hope you enjoyed the process and have found a little inspiration.

  1. This is very pretty Elizabeth with the large butterfly and beautiful peony and leaves, and I love the music background and a great idea to stamp on to a piece of painted card and then the added blue ties all the colours together. x
