Just Saying Hello

Getting cooler here in the UK and more comfortable to do a bit of crafting :)

I've used the sketch from Fusion for inspiration (lacking creativity just lately) and used Altenew Painted Butterflies in two shades of pink.  I knew when I first saw the sketch that I didn't want to use patterned paper and settled on texture paste.  I masked off an area for the butterfly to nestle in before applying the paste, its a bit off but hey its handmade.

I added a good helping of sparkle and the sentiment is from the same set.

  1. Love the design of your beautiful card, Claire. The textured paste make a lovely background for the butterfly. xx

  2. OOhh how clever of you with the texture paste and masking Claire. This is a lovely card.xx

  3. I LOVE the partial embossing paste panel with that beautiful delicate butterfly in pink! It's a great look and I love how you put this together!

  4. Hi Claire, a beautiful card, love the texture and shimmer on the card, love the butterfly too... have a wonderful week... Megan

  5. The texture paste looks great - lovely card. The cooling off is a bit of a relief but it's a shame we have to go straight from too-hot-to-move to too-wet-to -leave-the-house!

  6. This is so pretty Claire, love the twinkle of the embossed area, really gorgeous. I am enjoying a rainy indoors day xx

  7. This is stunning - the textured background is perfect for that delicate butterfly and the added sparkle is just gorgeous! Thanks for playing along at Fusion Claire!
