Country View Crafts Challenges - Black, White and 1 Colour

Today it is my turn to show you another project for the current Country View Crafts Challenge, which is 'Black, White +1 colour'.  After sticking to black and white for my first project I decided to add a splash of colour to my second.

Again, this is a very simple make, and also used new products.

I started by die cutting the smaller tattered butterfly from the new Tim Holtz Sizzix collection. I die cut 8 for this project.   I simply adore these.  I have always had a soft spot for butterflies so fell instantly in love with them.  

I die cut 8 butterflies in total to layer them, attaching them with a staple.  I love the layered look.  Though this was not my idea as one of the DT for Tim Holtz showed this in their sample projects for the release.

I used the PaperArtsy Ink & Dog mini splotch stamp for the background.  This must be one of my oldest stamps and I use it a lot.  It is great to use with both ink and paint.  In this instance, I used Archival Vibrant Fuchsia ink.  I love how bright this is, despite the fact I don't tend to lean towards bright!

I mounted my card onto black card and a white card blank.

To finish I stamped a greeting from a PaperArtsy Emma Godfrey mini stamp set.

I really enjoyed making, what is for me, a simple card.  It was great fun.

I hope that you are enjoying the challenge this month.  Don't forget that there is plenty of time to join in and if you link your project to the blog you may be in with a chance of winning a gift voucher to spend in the online shop.

Thanks for joining me today.  Do leave a comment to let me know what you think of my project - they always mean so much to me.

Happy crafting!
