Butterfly Doodles...

I've been having a play this afternoon with the CCSR 'Doodles' stamps (by Papermania), having a go at making my own backing papers. I've stamped the two different flower stamps (with black ink embossed with clear powder) on to Core'dinations card (from the 'Nostalgia' pack), using a different size on each colour. I stamped the butterflies on Core'dination's then cut them out, mounting them on different thickness 3D foam pads to give them shape. I stamped the sentiment (from the CCSR 'Sentiments' set by Papermania), then separated the words. I then tore all of the edges to reveal the contrast core for a bit of added texture.
