Butterfly tag and two spotlight cards

 

Good afternoon followers, friends and family popping in.  Today I have some butterfly cards and a tag made using Papermilldirect cardstock.  The tag showcases ivory coloured hemp textured card from the new range of textured card now available from Papermilldirect.


The ivory card was coloured and stencilled with distress inks, the sentiment and two die cut butterflies coloured with distress crayons were added.   The edges of the tag were blended with some distress ink and some gilding flakes added (does not show up well on the photo).  The tag was mounted onto black card.  The texture on the card is gorgeous, die cuts beautifully and took the distress inks and crayon well.


The following two cards were made using the spotlight technique, Papermilldirect white super smooth, black, new lilac and pastel canary card.


A tutorial for my spotlight cards can be found on the Papermilldirect blog.
