Pastel Patchwork




Hello and welcome to my blog  :)  Today I have a quick cheerful card to share with you, which is also  being featured on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog in the 'Fifteen Minute Cards' section.  All the cards there take 15 minutes or less to make which is great when you need something last minute!  
The stamps I have used are from the Patchwork Butterfly and Leafy Background sets and I have coloured with Pastel Aquatints.




I stamped the large Butterfly first and embossed it in black, then masked it.  I then stamped the Leafy Background in grey ink so that it faded literally into the background, and created perspective.



I painted the background then removed the masking fluid.




I then painted the beautiful butterfly image.



To complete the card I matted the butterfly panel with black card and attached it to the base card.  I think this bright and cheerful design will suit a variety of occasions for all ages.
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I'd love it if you leave me a comment and I hope you'll visit again soon  :)
