Antique Flowers and Butterflies

Antique Flowers and Butterflies is a stamp and die set from Hero Arts and Sizzix.  I have been just waiting to use these.  My mojo has been on vacation, but I decided to work this into the Mojo 227 challenge for this week.  I also put it in the Ribbon Carousel challenge with market street challenge RRC39 where you need to use ribbon or twine or anything on a spool.  This is a good set if you have problems with shading as you could get by using only one color on the flower.  I used Copic R27, but did do some highlight with R29.  The center of the Flower is YR02.  The leaf color is YG 95 while the butterfly has R20 and E31 for colors.  The paper is new from Authentique "Party" and "Enjoyment".  Black was used for the ribbon and a small solid on the card to finish it off.  It really is rather simple.  Don't you think this would make a good sympathy or birthday card?   Hope you enjoy.


  1. You made a quite stunning card. The colors give impact, the stamp/die really adds the wow factor!

  2. Love your interpretation of the sketch Mary Jo! Great for many different occasions!


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
