Autumnal Butterflies

Good Morning All!

It`s One Layer week again over at Simply Less is More and this time the theme is WINGS.

I`ve taken the easy option and gone with butterflies.

I`ve used white linen card and embossed a rectangle using a nestie.
I stamped the butterflies (Elusive Images) onto the rectangle then masked off the butterflies and around the rectangle before inking with Versacolor Sand all over then Versacolor  Brown around the edges.
The image is coloured with Promarkers in autumn colours.
The sentiment is from There She Goes which was a gift from my lovely blog friend Tara ( Thanks Tara)

Although one layer cards don`t hold the fear they once did for me, I`ve come to the conclusion that mine are getting much of a muchness so I might have another go with something a bit different.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Pretty card Lynne, love your gorgeous butterflies..a lovely one layer card


  2. Lovely stamping and colouring, Lynne. Those butterflies look really 3D! Sue x

  3. I like this Lynne - but I know what you mean about one layer cards - trouble is, I can't think of anything else to do to make mine different -my last effort was supposed to be one layer and didn't like it so chopped it down a bit and mounted it onto coloured card! x

  4. Lynne your card is gorgeous! I love the embossed rectangle, inking and coloring. TFS!

  5. Hola Lynne, gorgeous card, fantastic colouring, i love the soft colour on the edges, the butterflies are veri bright, well done Lynne.
    Have a good week.

  6. Really pretty Lynne.

  7. beautiful card, lynne! love the embossed rectangle and the sponged background!

  8. Very pretty! Love all the sponged ink...and of course the butterflies are beautiful!

  9. Fab one layer card. Love the butterflies, they're so bright and cheery. xx

  10. It's not much of a muchness it's lovely Lynne
    Thank you very much

  11. Gorgeously inked background for your wonderful bright butterflies. x

  12. It must be a British saying, "much of a muchness." I'm trying, but I can't think what that means. Your one-layer card is stunning!! It looks NOT one layer with that beautiful sponging and dimensional butterflies. Even with masks, I manage to smooge around the edge whenever I try something like this, so I'm mighty impressed.

    Maybe my masks are old? Are Robin Hood and Made Marion masks still popular?

  13. I mean to say Maid Marion. Even with my "accidental" typos, that one sticks out like a sore thumb!

  14. This is just gorgeous! Love the embossed frame and the butterflies are just so pretty!

  15. Beautiful - the brightly coloured butterflies really stand out!


  16. Love this one too Lynne, can't choose which I like best :) Viv xx
