Butterfly Star Trails

Hello. I have another CAS card to share using a mix of a couple of stamp sets:

I took the theme from Krafty Chicks, the colour inspiration from CAS Colours and Sketches, and the image inspiration from Fusion Card Challenge.

I ‘found’ this butterfly stamp set from Stampin Up when adding to Color My Life app – and am finding and revisiting a lot of my old stash. I knew I had a lot of products dotted around my craft room and the spare bedroom – but I didn’t realise how much I had forgotten I had.

Adding to this app is bringing back to me the reasons I bought a lot of my products in the first place – and never utilised them…….

I stamped all three layers of the water-colour butterfly as you see, then used the matching die set to cut it out.

I wanted some swirly trails behind the butterfly, and – again – found this stamp set from The Ton which has several star trails stamps. I used one trail stamped in red, then added the yellow and navy stars individually.

Once I had decided where the butterfly was going to be, I then stamped the antennae – that took a little fiddling around – the most difficult part of the card……
