Butterflies Galore by Fliss Goodwin



Hi there, I think you’ve probably guessed by now that I have rather an obsession with butterflies as they seem to feature on quite a lot of my creations. This week is no exception as I have a card to share with includes quite a few! 


Carabelle Studio A7 Stamps – Background Papillons, Collage
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint – Beach Hut, Bora Bora
Smooth Paper
Card Blank




I actually used a Gelli print from my stash for this card but it was made using the aqua acrylic paints shown above. I normally take several prints from the one lot of paint, misting with water and picking up the leftover paint several times. I find it very useful as the paler prints can make a really fabulous background.

I trimmed a piece of the print to fit my chosen card blank and then stamped on the butterfly background twice in opposite corners with the grey ink. I then stamped on the cherub and butterfly collage twice with the same ink.

I stamped part of the butterfly edge stamp on a scrap of Gelli print with the grey ink and coloured them with pencils (I used Spectrum Noir) and cut them out.

To finish the panel I stamped part of the chevron image in the gaps round the edges. I then attached it to the card blank and added the butterflies as shown.


Have a great weekend and see you next week.

  5. Beautiful movement and I like the use of the chevron, bringing an edge to the card.
