Today’s card I have made this fun, simple and elegant card using the Inspired By Stamping Butterflies Stampset & the cute little Friends sentiment stampset.

My ink of choice today is Versafine onyx black as this is a fine detail which is perfect for watercolouring or pencil colouring. The colour combination of pencils are from Prismacolour premium range PC1002 Yellowed Orange, PC918 Orange & PC915 Lemon Yellow. These pencils have a creamy texture to them and need very little blending but if you need to blend it I have found here in Australia Citrus Turpentine along with a blending paper stump tool works perfectly.

For this card I found once I have coloured the butterfly focal image in I didn’t need to do the extra blending and left it as is.

With the butterfly stamp I have stamped directly on the white cardstock slightly smaller than the top folding black card base.

2 times with the big butterfly either side so I can stamp another butterfly on a separate piece of cardstock as well along with a little butterfly on the bottom left.

The sentiment has also been stamped with the same ink on a smaller white piece of rectangle and matted on a black rectangle 1/4 inch bigger than the white cardstock.

To finish embellishing off the card I have used Black Nuvo drops which I have scattered throughout the whole card.
