I am really loving the butterfly stamp from the 'Dreams du Jour' set right now. I love the fact that it is an outline stamp, so if you want to colour it in, like I did for this Kristina Challenge card, you can. I also love the fact that there is enough fine detail in that outline, that if you want to, you can just stamp it out in a single colour and it still looks fantastic - especially if you have a few in different colours:
For this card I really wanted the focus to be on those butterflies, and originally set out to have just some stamping on a single piece of white card. Unfortunately the white card, while perfect for stamping on, is not the heaviest, and the card seemed a bit too flimsy. Instead I trimmed it up and attached it to a teal card base, to match that teal sentiment. I was pleased with the finished look - having the teal didn't take away from the butterflies at all, and I think I ended up with a more balanced card.
The colour combination of taken with teal, real red, and apricot appeal came straight from the latest Stamping 411 colour inspiration challenge. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get everything positioned just where I wanted it, but other than that, this card was super simple, and I now I think I love those butterflies even more!
