In My Pocket



I have missed the last few weeks of this challenge so apologies to Hels. Thought I had better join in this week as the theme was "Butterflies" and I love them. I have used Rustic Gems papers to cover the envelope. I tore around the edges of the paper to go on the flap and inked around the edges with green chalk ink. I then stamped two butterflies in deep green ink and used Stickles to add sparkle to their dots and bodies. Both butterflies are hidden by the flap when closed. I stamped the bird in the same colour ink at the bottom of the envelope. For the front of the flap I stamped a flower onto some Rustic Gems paper, stuck it to some card and cut it out. I have placed a little heart gem in the flower centre. All of the stamps are from Hels own range of stamps, Stitchels, which can be found at The Artistic Stamper. I haven't stamped a sentiment yet as I haven't decided who to send this to.
