Flights of Fancy – Card

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your visits and lovely comments on my last post.

I’m not really a pink and purple sort of person. Love the colours but rarely use them. I think I am more of a brown and grey sort of gal!!! lol!

This is another of the sample cards made for Crafty Individuals.



For the base, I coloured a piece of coated card stock with Distress Inks and then roughly and randomly stamped the small birds using versa Magic ink. I then made the butterfly toppers out of a scrap piece of CI pretty papers.  I quite liked the background so I didn’t want to cover it all with a topper so I opted for a little white frame cut out with dies.

Apologies for the photo. Not sure if it wasn’t in focus or its gone a bit grainy because of the light. Probably a bit of both. I have no idea really.

Crafty Individuals Stamps Used: Four Little Song Birds CI 184, CI Background Papers Aurora Borealis.

That’s it for today.

Thank you for looking.

Take care all,

Flo x

    I love these colours, and the CAS design. Strange to think that the paper is the focal image and the stamps the background but it looks completely right! Have a great Sunday. xx

    Think this colours look great together! And they give a fresh feel’to the card.
    Don’t think you are a brown/gray type of maker…those are good colours to ground the images, but I believe you use more blue, green and yellow…. Enjoy the sunday!

    Who doesn’t love a butterfly and even more using the pretty CI papers to frame it and with the added white frame too makes it stand out beautifully. I adore the colours and stamping too on the bottom layer which goes perfectly. x
