About Blackbutterfly Cards

I started making cards for pleasure in 2007, and quickly found my home was becoming swamped by cards everywhere. I decided to put some of them up for sale on a webpage in an effort to recoup some of the costs of my hobby. I called the webpage Blackbutterfly Handcrafted Cards, and it can be found at http://www.blackbutterfly2007.co.uk/

I try to take my cards to a couple of table sales or craft fairs a year, but make my cards mainly for friends and family. I would love the website sales to take off, as I nowhere near cover the costs involved in this all absorbing hobby, but for me the main thing is the pleasure I have in making my cards.
Recently I have decided to expand my blog to cover my other interests too. It's a sort of substitute for going to work and chatting to people, as due to ill health I was unable to work, and since the beginning of 2014 I am officially a pensioner.
Although I'll still show my cards, I'll also be covering my other interests and how I attempt to make ends meet day by day.

In fact anything that crosses my mind will be on here, so be prepared for waffle and a wasted five minutes as you read.
Make coffee and settle in, why don't you?

Another Wedding Card

This is just a quick post before bedtime.
I made another wedding card with that wonderful image from LOTV. A square, easel card this time. I painted the image with Twinkling H2O's, so the brides dress is done in the colour "Icicles", and some  spots of glitter were added on the back. The Groom's clothes and shoes were painted in Hunter Grey.The flowers were by Wild Orchid (of course), and the sentiment is a peel off that I'm almost sure is a Papermania product, but I've had it so long I'm not 100% sure!
The leaves were die cut using left over scraps of the paper I used as backing papers. The plain lilac is from my stash, and the patterned paper is from P.M Amethyst Infusion pad.
