Death and beauty

Over on the Unity Facebook page Angela Blom set a challenge to make something with this lovely digi image she gave away. This is for the Unity creative CHA party which is on all week. I printed the image onto kraft, and had to fight the printer to get this, but managed two copies after which the printer sulked. I was going to print it on white card and colour it, then I was going to colour the white card and cut out the flowers to mount on the kraft background, and in the end I decided to get my neglected Prismacolor pencils out because they colour beautifully onto any colour card. I kept it simple, die cut the image and sentiment with Spellbinders card creator dies (I had to pop the leaf outside the box), and made a c6 card blank in purple with a lighter mat, finally adding some polka dot ribbon.
Anyway check out the details on the Unity stamp company blog.

I have entered the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - anything goes with ribbon.

I found this beautiful butterfly dead, cooked to death in the conservatory. Sad because I have never seen one of these before, I thought it might be a moth, but finally decided that it must be a Marbled White butterfly. I know it doesn't look very black and white but remember - it cooked to death! I hope that there are more of these around.


  1. Lovely card, thanks for playing with us at Crafty Ribbons
    p.s. it is a marbled white... the butterfly conservation are doing a big count at the moment www.bigbutterflycount.org if you are interested :)

  2. Lovely card and fab colours. Such a shame about your flutterby too. Thanks for joining in with our Anything goes with Ribbon challenge at Crafty Ribbons this time.
