Fairytales and Butterflies

I wanted to create a special card for my friend's birthday, using one of my new Tilda stamps - Fairytale Tilda.  I had seen a tutorial for a Joy fold card, so thought I would give it a go.  Joy Fold Tutorial, can be found HERE.




I used Pink and Peach card from the Papermill Shop.  The main paper's that I used for this card are from the Papermania Regency paper pad and the others are from a pad, I got free on a magazine.

I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, to stamp all the images with.  I stamped two butterflies, as I wanted to layer the wings, to make them demensioal.  The Butterfly is from Magnolia's Spring club pack.
PhotobucketI stamped the image onto a circle, cut using a nestability die. 

 I have coloured Tilda with Copic's and Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils.

I used the following Copic's for the skin: E000, E00, E01, R20 and R22.

I also used C3, W1 and W3 for shadow.

I used Spica Glitter pens for detail and also to colour the butterfly in. 

PhotobucketThe finished butterfly has been created from the two images.  I glued one onto the image first and then cut just the wings off the other and using a ball tool, I embossed from the back to shape the wings.  Once, I was satified with the effect, I glue these on top of the complete one.  I used a Sukura Clear Glaze pen, to colour the butterfly.

I used chalks, around the edge to pull the blue and the green colours, out to the edge.  The complete image, has been mounted on to a scalloped circle, also cut using a nestability die.


I have used flowers from Wild Orchid crafts and added some Butterfly charms.  The larger one was purchased from a pound shop and I have treaded a piece of Pink spotted ribbon to hang it from.  The smaller one, I have had in my stash for a while and have waited for the right project. 


PhotobucketFor the inside, I added another circle of Peach card card using a nestabilty die and added a birthday settlement.

I have decided to enter this card in the following challenges:
