This was a stamped image from Hero Arts called Delicate Blossoms. It was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Gina K 120lb luxury cardstock. Then it was coloured using copics - R22, R24, R27, R29, YG 95,YG97, YG99 and shadowed with T3. I had a bad bleed over on one of the smaller poppies and the blender pen couldn't correct it so I covered it up with a butterfly. The butterfly image I cut out of another image I stamped with the Inkadinkado stamp called Time Flies Collage. It was also coloured with copics - YR12,14,18, YO8,18, V17. I pieced the second wing underneath to look more like a butterfly that has landed on the flower. The whole image was cut out using Spellbinders Labels 8 along with some red cardstock cut from the same Spellbinder to frame the image. The image was edged with some Memento Tuxedo Black and distressed with Memento Dessert Sand and a sponge. The image was mounted onto a piece of black and silver striped pattern paper I had in my stash and couldn't find a manufacture on it. It was all mounted onto Bazzil white cardstock and used some sheer red ribbon to complete it. The inside of the card was done using some Basic Grey Little Black Dress "Elegant" paper and an area created for a message using some black, red and white cardstock. It didn't add any sentiment and decided to leave it blank as an all occasion card.
