We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Butterflies of the night ...

I've got quite a few birthdays in June, so I've been busy making some cards.  I hadn't yet used my latest stamp collection from Ryn, the Moon Wings, which I adore; so I got those out, plus some iridescent paint.

The background is blue/green iridescent paint with a couple of moths stamped and embossed in white, then stamped again in black onto a Gelli print.

I'm also going to call these night butterflies as the current Craft Barn weekly challenge is ... butterflies!

Happy Summer Solstice!


  1. The iridescent background is scrumptious! Good foil to the embossed butterflies too...

  2. I bet this looks amazing IRL. Love those night butterflies!

  3. Beautiful design the white embossing is very effective with the pop of colours. Take care, Shirleyxx

  4. Wow, beautiful!! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.

  5. Night butterflies - I like it :) My Father and I went to a Butterfly Conservatory to celebrate Father's Day yesterday. I was in awe! So many moths look like butterflies and vice versa so "night butterflies" works quite well. If you get the chance check out Sunset moth on Google. So beautiful! The metallic background of this looks great with the white embossing over top. Good to know that's possible. I've never tried that. Many thanks for sharing Kaybee :)
