Hello, everyone. This is my third post today but I haven't been spending much time online so I must seize the opportunity when it arises. I woke up at 3 a.m. so here I am.
I was inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, where the letter is H, and the 6 elements to choose from are herringbone card, hemp, heat wave, hansa yellow, hazel, and butterfly. I went with herringbone card, hazel, and butterflies. I've been wanting to try the herringbone pattern for a while and I'm glad I did - it's a great way to use scraps!
The patterned paper was part of a digital set that got messed up when my ink cartridge was running out - the colours are not right and they do not coordinate with the rest of the set. I almost binned them but then decided to save them for a card like this. Four pages were affected so I cut them into strips and made my herringbone pattern (see Mrs. A's instructions/tutorial here.)
Clear stamps: STAMPlorations Beautiful You (silhouette flowers), STAMPlorations Grateful Flutters (butterflies), Hero Arts Everyday Sayings (sentiment)
On my herringbone pattern I stamped butterflies, silhouette flowers, and an anniversary sentiment. I die-cut the butterflies, layered, and adhered. I layered the herringbone panel on a hazel panel and then a magenta panel. To finish the card I added some black gems to the butterfly bodies.
