Beads and Butterflys!

Midnight 5

It dawned on me the other day that I never just blog my cards anymore.

I only ever seem to blog challenges!

Which is a bit naughty really because back in the day when I used Photobucket, I had a picture of all my cards and I could go back and remake them ... knowing which style was selling well!

Well, I am now going to rectify that. I made this card using only Stitchels Dotty Dot stamps.

I covered a piece of card with Fired Brick distress Midnight 5a ink then I stamped the Dotty Dot flower all over with water. I dried it all and then I stamped over the watermark flower impression with the fired brick ink again. Finally I used the same bazzill I had used for the matting and layering and made two dotty dot butterflies, adding wire for the antennas and stickles for the bodies and the dots.

The picture ain't great ... but hopefully you get the general idea ... and so will I, if I need to make this card again!
