"Painted Butterflies" Oversized Postage Stamp Card for Blockheads

Hello Everyone!

The Blockheads design team are featuring Butterfly projects this month and here's another one of my creations.  I had a ball playing with my new 8 x 10 Gelli Arts Printing Plate and created the print below by using up some old acrylic paints destined for the trash and Blockheads Paper Arts large Butterfly stamp from their exclusive Painted Butterflies stamp set.

"Winter Buttlerfly" Valentine CAS Card for Blockheads!

Woohoo, my first post for 2013...Happy New Year to you all :0)

Southern California is having some really cold weather so I was inspired to create a monochromatic Valentine's Day card with a wintery feel to it!  The Blockheads Paper Arts design team are featuring Butterflies this month and here's my Winter Butterfly CAS card to give you some ideas.  Pop by the Blockheads blog to see the DT butterfly creations too!

The monochromatic colour scheme and wood grained background gives this card a masculine feel even though I used the the heart lace border along the left edge.  The self adhesive lace border by Stampabilities is made from plastic so I think that gives it more of an industrial feel instead of all girly and fluffy.  This is also a CAS card in my opinion coz it is actually pretty clean and simple compared to what I usually do ;0)
