Pinterest Tuesday - Butterfly Rainbow

Yes today is Pinterest Tuesday on the Crafters Anonymous Facebook page and the above is pretty much a direct case to the original here - http://pinterest.com/pin/76420524898253848/
I started with the Baja Breeze cardstock and sponge clouds with White Craft ink on it with a scallop circle punched cloud template. It gives a nice subtle effect that really doesn't show well on the photo. Then I stamped some butterflies from the new set Papillon Potpourri and punched them out with the new Butterfly Punch - I just LOVE both the set and the punch. It has the real life like butter like the bottom red one and then stylised ones like the green one with 4 blingys on it and the florally purple one up near the top on the left. The other butterflies were cut and embossed with the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit - so pretty!
This book is the one I demonstrated at the Auckland Heartfelt event which I used Pinterest for the Betsy's Blossom placement. That one I traced back to the website here - http://nanceleedy.blogspot.co.nz/2012/06/making-my-own-edgelit.html
I was asked as part of my brief to put together some things that people wouldn't normal use - and to be honest these two colours are me LEAST favourites of all the Stampin' Up!s range. These are Gumball Green and Primrose Petals. I used the contrasting colours to show how my books worked as the bamboo sticks are woven thru the tabs and it was easy to show them. But when you add So Saffron to the mix the two contrasting colours go together!
