Sunday Postcard Art




Audrey Hernandez is the hostess for this week's butterfly theme at Sunday Postcard Art.


I was going to experiment with some alcohol inks and a few of my butterfly stamps, but by the time I had fiddled around with a few things laying on my craft desk I had already finished this card and was happy with the way it looked.


The image is from Collage Visions. The background text is from a French Composition book I recently found at a thrift store. The butterfly definition stamp is from Paper Artsy And the vellum I am just crazy about -- found a whole package of 12x12 sheets at Big Lots for $2. Which is not the real reason I'm crazy about it. I just think it's gorgeous.
