Card inspired by Sam Butler

Sam treated us to one of her fab oriental pieces of art as GD for PaperArtsy this week.  I'm always in awe of her oriental style projects so I grabbed the one set of oriental stamps I have and got to work.  Shamefully I never actually used this particular stamp before.

I really liked the idea of die cutting a shape and decoupaging it on the main image - I've used a butterfly the same as Sam - great idea !

Whilst I was rummaging around for a spare piece of black card I found a scape of black and red card that matched perfectly so I decided to use this and make a card out of my design.

thanks for getting me to use these stamps again Sam !



  1. Fabulous make Sarah and your butterfly looks fabulous. Glad you were inspired to use your previously un-used oriental LP image. The red and black is so striking.

    Thanks so much for playing along and good luck in the draw later on today.
