Bright Butterfly

Just a quick post today - you may notice a distinct lack of anything much Christmasy here..that's because no matter how hard I try I just cannot get into the Christmas vibe - since returning from my hols first week of October I have made a total of five - yes, just five Christmas cards ! . I was a bit worried my crafting mojo had gone completely but when I received some stamps to make samples with for Stamp Addicts I had a glorious afternoon getting inky and came up with numerous cards - phew, so it seems it's just the whole Christmas thing I'm not feeling !  

So to brighten up the gloomy days we are having at the moment here are a couple of the cards I made - 

Both Butterflies were stamped and embossed onto glossy card that had been coloured with alcohol inks. On the top card I masked a square, coloured with distress inks and stamped with Judikins Italian script stamp (one of my all time favs!) 
The background for this one is simply a small Butterfly stamped in various colours of Stazon. 
I'm sharing the top card in these challenges - 
Happy daze - Bright Colours
Happy Campers Craft Collective - Bright Colours
Anything Goes - Anything goes
The Artistic Stamper - Anything goes
Blockheads - Clean and Simple

Thanks for stopping by...Esther xx
