As I draft this I am in the middle of sharing festive related posts and it will be after Christmas before I will manage to share this card which was amongst a few in a feature article, in the Oct/Nov/Dec issue of The Stampers’ Sampler, of cards which all featured Darkroom Door butterflies, from the beautiful stamp set, Butterfly.
I don’t know how many of the cards I will end up sharing with you but for this post, here is one card which I gave the title of The Lone Butterfly. I wanted the butterfly to be raised from the cardbase, giving the impression that it has alighted there merely for a second before it takes flight on the summer’s breeze.A fragment of found paper which had several colours applied and if I remember, different paints. I liked the way that there are veins of gold appearing on the paper.
Lots of paint splatters, am I at my happiest when creating splatters! There is something about creating splatters which is so childlike, maybe it is the way it is done with abandon, a very carefree way to apply paint. What is missing from the photographs is the shimmer created by the Twinkling H20s which you can almost pick up from the close-up of the painted fragment of paper. The colours on this card are far removed from the colours viewed from our windows at this time of the year but one thing is for certain, it might well be December but in no time at all, we will be in the summer months of 2015 wondering where the past six months have disappeared to and why time is passing us by so quickly!
