Things with wings


I made this card last night for a couple of challenges but didn't get round to posting it until now.  I wanted to enter the Butterflyspot challenge as I always seem to miss it these days.  From the list which is the letter E I selected the three colours Electric yellow,emerald and eucalyptus, I used an embossing folder, heat embossed the stamped panel and added the dots as embellishments, the seventh item is of course the butterflies.  These colours are not a combination I would normally use but I quite liked the finished product.  The poppy pods and large butterfly are a very old stamp set way back to Graphicus which then became Elusive Images and now Chocolate baroque. I think they were one of the first A4 sheets of unmounted rubber stamps I bought, I think they have brought some of them out again now.  I'd also like to enter Allsorts Challenge - Things with wings
and Retro Rubber Challenge  anything goes - my stamps are very old, 10, 15 years maybe more!

  4. Love your Vintage card Joan, the embossing in the background really makes all the elements on your card stand out. I really love the bright colors you used. I'm a sucker for anything with a butterfly! Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber.
