Step by Step
Using the corners from the Vintage Morsel set and a sepia hue from the Brush Marker pens, stamp into each corner of the latte square card.
To create the centre image, take a cream piece of card from the pack, and cut it down to measure 10.5cm x 17.5cm. Start by stamping the three plantpots into the centre, and then various foliage and flowers from the sets to create the plant. Stamp some leaves and stems along the floor underneath the plant pot to create a base for them to stand on. Go around the edges of the cream card with sepia or a darker brown.
Take a blender pen and lightly colour across the plant pots and some of the flowers to create a softer tone.
Cut a piece of gold metallic card to 11.5cm x 18.5cm and mount the cream card onto this using 3D foam pads. Go around the gold with the same colour as you used before (from the whispers pens). This will help to give the edges more definition.
Take a piece of sticky ribbon in sepia, and attach across the middle of the latte card. Highlight the edges of the ribbon, again, with the same colour used for the stamping. This will give a bolder edge to the ribbon.
Attach your stamped and layered image into the centre of the card. You can then decide where you would like your butterfly. I have stamped mine in the centre below the floral design. Use the sepia brush marker and blending pen!
