Lets go fly a kite.......

Good afternoon. The card I have to share with you today is again made with the April set from Stamp Addicts. I just used the kite and umbrella stamp. As you can see I have used the umbrella stamp to form the butterflies by just inking up the main umbrella part and wiping the ink from the handle and tip of the umbrella to form each wing of the butterfly. The kites have been decoupaged and both the butterflies and kites have been coloured using promarkers. The background was created by using a colour duster brush and stippling blue and white ink onto the card to form a sort of blotchy sky effect. The Thank You sentiment is from a different set but also from Stamp Addicts and has been stamped onto a spellbinders diecut. The sky background was mounted onto a scrap of card that I coloured with the green promarkers around the edges to match the rest of the card and the tail of the bottom kite has been replaced with some wire that I beaded and then attached to the reverse of the kite. To finish off I just added green and purple stickles glitter glue to the butterflies wings and to the kite.
Thanks for looking, will be back soon.
