Two Stitched  Main Street Tags, placed behind the border, rayon ribbon and charm added.

Bellina Butterfly Collage.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors..

Sharing my DT card today for  Poppystamps Blog. 

On today`s card I have used this Poppystamp die "Bellina Butterfly Collage"  this cut`s  out of the card and leaves the negative behind, top layer in cream card adhered to white card,  at the same time I cut a circle to stamp through, with Open Studio Circle layers.

I first cut out in card for a mask, which I could add ink colours and shading through to my main white card, below! 

I used distress inks in orange shades, dark at the centre butterflies, going lighter towards the edge.

Main card piece, I then adhered over these shaded butterflies. 
Close up of these butterflies, I decided it needed something to emphasis the cut out, used a black pen to make random dots. 

Next I stamped this beautiful Memory Box Sentiment in black ink,through the circle cutout, then I   cut a scalloped circle with "Stitched Scallop Circles" had to remove the centre cut out next as the die is to large to use together. Adhered this on the card.
Two Hampstead Corners to finish,  double cut the flowers to layer in up, orange and white.
Embossing folder from my stash for the background. Crafters Companion  Texture.
Glitter and black beads to finish.
