Butterfly kisses

Good morning all and what a beautiful start to the week.
Supposed to get up in the 30's this week which for the South Coast is scorching.
My card today has been created with the Allsorts challenge in mind of Blue as the ocean.
Embossed an A4 card sheet using flourishes by Docrafts.
Distressed and picked out the embossing with ink pad.
The Butterfly faerie stamp is Faerie Poppets 'Baby Rosebud' by Christine
 Haworth and coloured with pencils from WHSmith and Promarkers for her skin.
Diecuts used are Spellbinders S2-010 and S4-425.
Finished off with Bling, glitter, feathers,  flower and bow.

  1. It certainly is blue as the ocean Julie and absolutely perfect for our them this week. I remember the fairy poppet images from many years ago when they came out as firstly decoupage when you had to cut it all out by hand and then as wood mounted stamps. But they still retain their pretty look and charm which has always made them so popular.

    Many thanks for joining in at Allsorts this week.
