Take Flight by Alison Hall



Hello Crafters. I've been working with Carabelle Studio stamps again, they really are lovely!


Here's what I used... 

Carabelle Studios Stamps - Desire (A7), Collage Nid D'Abeilles (A6)
Brusho Crystal Colour - Yellow, Orange, Brilliant Red, Purple
Detail Embossing Powder - Clear
Tim Holtz Paper Distresser
Glossy Accents
Heat Gun




1. Cut a piece of white card 12x12cm, then stamp the hexagon background in opposite corners. Distress the edges, then apply black ink to them.

2. Stamp the Desire image onto white card, cut it out, distress & ink the edges.

3. Stamp the Desire image onto white card again, clear emboss, cut out just the butterfly, then watercolour with diluted Brusho colours. Whilst you still have the watery Brusho colours on a palette, use the paintbrush to flick the different colours onto the hexagon background.

4. Adhere the Desire image at a slight angle onto the hexagon background, attach the painted butterfly on top of the image with Glossy Accents, leaving the wings free to bend up slightly.


5. Apply words from the Botanical Remnant Rubs, then attach the artwork to a white card blank.


Hope you're inspired to create some art today!

  4. Gorgeous card. I love the colours you have used.

  5. Looks like your butterfly just landed long enough to get a little "heart's desire" - maybe some water, some sugar or some hmmmm?!! and is ready to take off again on a journey! Lovely. j.

  6. I love the 3D effect of this beautiful red butterfly on your background. xx

  7. Really gorgeous card Alison. The red is an amazing contrast to the monochromatic stamping.
