Butterfly Rose Sympathy Card

Sadly, sympathy cards are ever more in demand.  This butterfly stamp set designed by Cherry Green provides a beautiful image for such a card.
Stamp the small butterfly from the Create Art in Colour A5 stamp set onto Clarity stencil card in Onyx Black Versafine ink and mask it off.
Add the rose so it looks as if the butterfly is perched on it in the same ink and mask off.
Add the large stem and leaves in the same way and mask up.
Add the smaller leaves and remove the masks.
Die cut the image using the 4” x 5” nested rectangle die and cut a mat from black card using the 4.25” x 5.25” nested rectangle picot die.
Colour the images using Faber-Castell Polychromos (Rose - #109, #124, #123, #133: Leaves #168, #267, #278: Butterfly #205, #109, #143).
Blend a little Moon Crater artistry ink round the edges of the topper to form a vignette using a Clarity stencil brush and mat up the topper.
Trim a 7” x 7” white card blank to 7” x 5” and add the topper to the front. Add Deepest Sympathy using the Entwined sentiments in the same ink as before.
To finish, add the solid butterflies either side of the sentiment in the same ink as before.
