Copper Butterfly {Hello}

Good morning everyone. 

I was playing around in my craft room yesterday and got very busy watercolouring and using texture paste and other goodies. I was able to make a number of cards (some which will be shown later in the week) but here is one that I would like to share with you today.

(NOTE: If you would like a watermark created for your projects - like the one I have made for my cards, please email me at and I will give you 10% off the design price if you mention this post)

My generous friend, Loll sent me a number of stencils that she made with her Silhouette. I really wanted to use the 'brick' design.

I masked off my panel and then used texture paste through the stencil. Once it was dry, I sponged Baked Brown Sugar ink over the panel. 

I die cut a butterfly from copper sheets that Loll had also sent me many moons ago. I usually use them for leaves but I thought it made for a beautiful butterfly. 

The grass is an Impression Obsession die which I cut up a little to give me smaller pieces. 

The stitched rectangle is from Lil' Inkers.

The sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

A big thank you to Loll for my goodies. I really love them.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

Eclectic Ellapu - Texture
Papertake Weekly - Super Fly
Emerald Faeries Challenge - Things with Wings

Thanks so much for looking xx


  1. That is one nice card Kylie! I like the stenciled background, how nice of Loll to send you goodies!

  2. Gorgeous card Kylie, love the textured wall and that stunning butterfly, Cathy x

  3. This is so pretty Kylie, love the background and the copper butterfly.
    So kind of Loll to send you those v useful goodies. x

  4. This is awesome Kylie!! LOVE your sponged brick wall with copper butterfly. The reeds really add a lot to this design --- fabulous!! Loll xx

  5. My goodness Kylie, the brick wall looks so real and the way you have faded the colour to the edge is really effective. And the splash of green is perfect. I die cut a butterfly from these sheets before and think they look wonderful, so easy to get stuck with leaves. I am pinning this card!!

  6. Wow...I love how you colored that brick, realistic! And that copper butterfly is simply amazing...LOVE this!

  7. Your copper butterfly is absolutely gorgeous, Kylie! It's perfect with your brick wall background, too! Such a stunning card!!!
