Butterfly Square

Some stamps just seem to last forever - naturally the good quality red rubber ones do, but their style also lasts forever. This beautiful butterfly quartet stamp from Crafty Individuals has been in my collection for at least 15 years and I see it's still available - and probably still as popular as ever.

I started with a piece of the Master Background I made a couple of weeks ago and stamped the butterflies onto it,  stamping the sentiment onto one of the small snippets I'd saved.  Then I cut the butterflies apart and rearranged them until I was happy with how the colours of the backgrounds looked, as if they had all been stamped onto separate backgrounds, and stuck them down onto a white square. Then I added a couple of layers of matting and layering.

I had prepared a music themed background card to place them on, because of the music in the background of the images,  but once everything was stuck in place I felt the background detracted from the images so I removed them and went for a plain white card instead to really make them stand out.

I am sharing this with

The design for this card is so pretty. The light inky touch to the images is pretty and the inky backed sentiment to match is perfect
