Beautiful Butterflies

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... B for Beautiful Butterflies!

I have two cards to share with you today-  they feature butterflies from a Hero Arts/Sizzix stamp & die set, I used Distress Inks to watercolor them, MFT Stitched & pierced dies and a Simon Say Stamp die for the hello sentiment. 
For the background on my first card, I applied texture paste through the Tim Holtz Burlap stencil and then added a touch of distress ink & shimmer mist. 
On my second card I stamped the background with VersaMark ink and Inkadinkado's Sketchy Flourishes stamp onto Kraft cs and then brushed on gold Perfect Pearls, I used the We R Memory Keepers Chain folder for the embossing. 
Well, that's it for today... I hope you can join us and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by... I'll be back tomorrow!

These are beautiful, Tammy. The first one especially caught my attention as I love the texture added. I've actually got a burlap stencil, have used it a few times but with inks only, going to try paste next! Loving your new butterfly stamps too.
