Mixed Media Card with Parchment Butterfly

I really enjoyed making this card as it has lots of my favourite things on it and I love combining fabric, lace and papers.

I began by cutting some fabric ( a free curtain sample) to fit my green square mat which I distressed.

I stamped a nestie shape and attached that and a nestie cut from a stamped torn and gessoed background sheet I had previously made.

I found some beautiful ribbons and distressed just about everything that didn't move.

The stamp is from Crafty Individuals, stamped on linen and coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.
I made a parchment butterfly embellishment, with wire and an organza flower.
The flower is a silk carrier rod - if you haven't seen these check out Stef Francis.

The Artistic Stamper - Texture
The Ribbon Girl - Flowers
Sugar Creek Hollow - Fabulous Flourishes
