Butterfly Sparkle by Donna Ratcliff


Well we’ve had so much rain over the last week that I thought we could do with a real splash of colour. Was going for a Pop Art feel for this but a touch of grunge crept in in the background as well!

IndigoBlu – Flutterby
Kaisercraft Clear Stamps – Numbers, Confidence

Distress Ink –
Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn

Crafters Workshop Template –
Mini Specimens

Memento Ink –
Tuxedo Black

Clear Embossing Powder

Cut ‘n’Dry Foam


White Card

Heat Gun

Black Card


What I did….

1. So first of all I inked up Flutterby with a mixture of Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers, stamped it onto some white card, quickly sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed.

2. Then using some Cut ‘n’ Dry I added colour to the background using Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn Distress ink.
3. Then I added another layer of interest with a bit of background stamping using the numbers stamp and by putting a bit of colour through the Mini Specimens mask.

4. Then I layered the panel onto some white and then black card before attaching to a card blank.
5. Then I stamped the quote from the Confidence stamp set and glued in place. To finish off I added three little rhinestones.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you next week
