Indigo Blue and Butterflies

The new challenge over on the Butterfly Challenge blog is S is for Silhouette and/or the colour Indigo. So for this challenge I decided to go with some new dies I bought recently from Tattered Lace, the beautiful Barley and Butterflies and The Pearl Square. The butterflies are from All Occasions Dies and I carefully removed the Butterflies from the die without disturbing the bits that would normally drop out making them silhouettes. The background was made with Sheena's Stamping card and distress inks. I've not added a sentiment as I'll pop this card into my box for later.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Very effective use of the dies Sue and the deeper indigo colours really stands out nicely against the pastel shade.

Love this look Sue. Very elegant. That is a good way of making the butterflies into silhouettes albeit rather fiddly . Worth it for the result though. Thank you for fluttering into the garden . Hugs Mrs A.
