Shabby Butterflies

Hi Crafty Friends, I seem to have fallen behind catching up with your blogs but I have been under the weather with a kidney infection recently and hope to catch up soon. My Cheery Lynn Designs DT project this week that I'm sharing with you is a Shabby Style card with some mixed media on it. It is approximately 5 3/4 inches square in size.

Here is the start of the layers on my card. I cut a square of patterned paper and then placed my Dutch Daisy Border die on with some low tack tape to cut. I used my Distress Tool around the edges and added a couple of scraps of paper which I inked at the edges.

I then applied some Texture Paste through a strip of Sequin Waste to act as a Stencil. Once dry I added a little Distress ink to coordinate with the paper.

I used the large and medium die in the Sentiment Tag set, cutting white cardstock and adding a little Distress ink to the larger die before layering up and adding some Stickles around the middle. I then layered onto my Alpine Flourish.

My Butterflies were cut in patterned paper and layered up twice.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my card and now feel inspired to try this style of card. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a creative weekend,
