Moira's - original design by Janet (and using her pastels and stamp!)
Janet is a firm devotee of pan pastels, and is working very hard on trying to convert me............I do have to admit that they do blend beautifully, and are far less messy than my old (virtually untouched) pastels - the price makes me reel with horror though!
The pastel background was on white linen-finish card, sprayed with fixative before stamping the Clarity stamp of cherry blossom using versamark and Crafty Notions black/silver EP - a new brand to me in EP, and a very nice black. The blossoms were painted using a Stampin up craft white re-inker and a waterbrush - will try to find the link to this technique later.
Butterflies were cut using Spellbinders dies, with brads to hold them together and onto the card. Matted onto black card, then onto A5 white pearlescent base card .
The second card needs to be photographed, once I have replaced the batteries in my camera - to be honest, this one would have been better photographed............
