Painted Butterflies

Hello there...

It's been a beautiful bank holiday weekend here which is a bonus as there is always so much going on... The Beatles festival, Cream Fields music festival, lots of summer fetes and more. Everywhere is busy so yesterday we worked in the garden, well, hubby did mostly... I managed to slice my hand on a knife a few days ago so it's been a little difficult to do the normal things... 
Anyway whilst he was working away, there were 2 beautiful butterflies following him around and the card that I am sharing today also has 2 butterflies, left over from the ones I did when making my card for the CAS watercolour challenge... In fact this is made up from all left over pieces


I love putting bits together and seeing how they turn out 


These butterflies are not quite as colourful as the garden ones but it would have been a shame to waste them...


Next week Stella will be here and I've a few things to sort out yet so it may be awhile before I post again... I hope to visit you all today and see what you've been up to.

Have a beautiful week and take care

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Ros!! I love LOVE the gold thread you have wound around the butterfly bodies and for their antennae...so delicate and pretty! Fabulous background too!! :0)

A very innovative and clever design as usual Ros, and I love the piece of vellum behind the multi circle panel, and the butterflies work beautifully over the top, also what a great idea to use the silver thread for the antennae and wound round the butterflies so interestingly. Hope you enjoy your week with Stella. x

You make the most beautiful things with leftovers. This is gorgeous, Ros! Busy summer days. I'm sorry about your hand. We've just returned from a lengthy trip and I'm beginning to make the rounds, visiting. My stamping friends have been very busy!

Carole said...

Oh so pretty Ros..I like the bubbles/circles die..very different. Sorry to hear about your hand...hubby tried to slice the end off his finger yesterday too so a trip to the minor injuries unit was in order. Seems you are in good company :) xx

Robyn Oliver said...

Oh my!!! Your 'leftover' pieces have come together in a beautiful card Ros, that soft pink vellum ties all the other elements - so creative...love it, hugs Robyn

Christine Alexander said...

your butterflies are gorgeous Ros, such soft colours. I love your little collage of items to create the card :)

Bonnie said...

I love how the pink vellum looks over the script, Ros. It's so dreamy. The circle die cut makes a perfect place for these pretty butterflies to perch!

Maria said...

Oh, so lovely, Ros! Such pretty butterflies! Wonderful die and beautiful pink panel! Have lots of fun visiting with Stella!!

Darlene said...

Congrats on another win & I love this one, too! I have a similar circle die that's actually on my sale page as I never figure out what to do with it. Unique & lovely design, my friend!

Kara Lynne said...

I love those beautiful butterflies on the pink and white! Your card just looks so soft and feminine. Have a wonderful time with Stella!

Pauline said...

Oh so beautiful Ros! Love your butterflies and you complete design. The pink vellum adds a very nice soft background to display your circle die cut. You always make such interesting cards. Love this. Have a good weekend my friend!

Barbara said...

A beautiful card, I love the background, too. Sorry to hear about your cut, I hope it's much better already. I've done that two myself twice this summer - always with the bread knife. You would think I learn but...

Great way to leave your leftovers! Beautiful design! I hope your hand is better soon:)

Darnell said...

No one puts together bits as well as you do, Ros! This all looks intentional, not like serendipity, and that's the magic of your talented fingers! Sorry to hear you cut your hand! Hugs, Darnell
