Purely Artichoke Thanks

Hi there,

Well I have finally found the time to post the vintage-ish card I’ve mentioned. I used a Mojo Monday sketch as my starting point (I was hoping to get it in that week but circumstances intervened. Anyway just several weeks later, here is the Mojo sketch.

I wanted to try using a cuttlebug folder on the entire base of the card, so after selecting my colours, I folded the card base, stamped the front randomly with the butterfly and then slipped it into the Script cuttlebug folder. Then I trimmed off the excess from the bottom. The other point to note is that I first stamped the bird and bough on some watercolour paper then used the 1 3/8 circle punch to punch out the bird. A second stamped bird and bough was coloured using aquapainter and ink pads and then cut out and mounted on dimensionals to overflow out of the circle element.

So after all that detail here is the card.
