Challenge # 272 – Just Add…..Butterflies

Just Add Ink Challenge # 272 is Just Add……….Butterflies!!!

Well – I can guarantee from the outset that this is going to be a very very popular challenge.  Let’s face it – we all LOVE butterflies.  They are so intriguing and delicate – not to mention beautiful.  So – get those craft things out and show us your Butterfly!

Here’s mine!

I used one of the Butterfly Thinlet Dies to create this.  I decided I want to have a go at making an inlay butterfly.  That means that I cut 3 Butterflies – one Black, one Orange and one White.  Then I glued the Black outline down first on some card and then stuck all the little Orange and White bits into their rightful places.  It’s fiddly and time-consuming – but I think the effect is worth it.

So here’s my complete card:


I made this for a very special person.  Check out all the other beautiful Butterflies / projects at Just Add Ink – and show us yours too.

  1. Your beautiful butterfly was definitely worth the flddling, Chantell. It really pops on the leafy background. Great colour choice too.

  2. Such a gorgeous butterfly Chantell – the inlaid pieces make it so vibrant and I can’t wait to try it now after reading how you did it 🙂 Love the beautiful leafy and white background too xo

  3. Your butterfly was definitely worth the effort Chantell – it’s gorgeously realistic it is! Love the cloudy background too – such a fun touch. xxx
