Birds and Butterflies

I made these cards using the 4th week Viva la Verve challenge template.

It’s a pretty basic template but I didn’t find it very special or maybe I just didn’t have my Mojo and not in much of a creative mood. 

This is what I came up with.

I stamped the images with versa mark ink, then rubbed them with various shades of chalk.  I covered them with Diamond glaze to make them nice and shiny.  After they dried over night I cut the images out.

Notice the flower?

Products used:   Retired CTMH paper packet.  Hollyhock. Chocolate. Vanilla. D1452 – Find Your Style. Chalks. Diamond Glaze. Homemade paper flower. Vintage brad. Pin. Satin Ribbon. Cocoa ink.

Hi...these are beautiful. I love the butterfly with it's shiny look. The bird as well is so pretty, I love how it's lifted off the paper and the flower is adorable.
