Spectrum Noir Sparkle Butterfly Birthday Card

Good morning all.  Hope you are well today.
Just sharing a card that I made for my friends birthday this week.   I decided to have a bit of a play with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Pen Sets.

For the background I have used Emerald Green, Blue Topaz and Inspired Violet Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter pens from the Spring Summer set.   I scribbled the colours onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and pressed the card into the ink mix to give a really soft pretty effect.

The butterfly stamp is a magazine freebie and this has been stamped with archival ink.
I have used the same three Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to add a tiny bit of colour and have then blended this out using one of the crystal clear pens.  These have been cut out using the matching die.  The photos don't show how sparkly the butterflies actually are.

The greeting is from my stash stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed using white embossing power.   I've had the stamp for ages, it's unmounted rubber and I forgot to label it so not sure what the make is.

Just a few sequins added to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and I'll see you soon.

Crafty Calendar Monthly Challenge Card - April Showers/Springtime

Morning everyone.  Hope you are all okay on this April fools day.  It's the first Saturday in the month so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar.

The theme for this month is
April Showers or Springtime.

For my card I have used:
Drops of Love digi stamp from Miss Daisy Stamps coloured with copics.
I created the background using watercolour markers in a range of blues and pinks and copious amounts of water - this was the first time I have done this technique and ended up with a background that I was sort of pleased with I normally I throw the end result away...

Just a short post this month, my card for this challenge is a little bit melancholy which represents my mood because sadly my wonderful mom passed away last month and I'm heartbroken.
She was diagnosed with cancer in February and she sadly passed away the 20th March.
Love and miss you forever mom x
