Sunday Stamper - White Lines

 Hels has challenged us to make white lines, so I decided to take her at her word!!!

 But I needed a bold image to counter what I had in mind... this new butterfly came to my rescue... it's by Papermania...

 So the background started as a plain white card, then I criss-crossed lines with my Perfect Medium plain pen... the lines were then embossed in clear ep (what a surprise!!!) and various distress inks were rubbed into the card... of course, the embossed lines stayed white!!! hurrah...

 They are rather large, these butterflies, and that served a great purpose... I used white, shiny cardstock, smooched the same set of distress inks on it, plus a little red stain... they are printed in black archival and clear embossed, then slightly enhanced with some painted on colour...

I kept this tag simple and bright... it's what I can cope with this afternoon, after many phone calls to the various teams already involved , and those getting involved with my mother's care... golly, it is so wearing... thank the Dao for my crafting!!!

Thanks for coming to look and for commenting... I do love to see and hear from you... and don't forget to join in with the birdcage swap - see at the top of my posts!!
Love and light

Frankie, I am one with you!! (except my brother did all the hard work!) LOVE your tag - the background is gorgeous, and I may have to appropriate that idea! The butterflies are fab, too. Take care.

Fabulous butterflies - I thought they were made from metal at first and then glass, but I didn't think you added glassblowing to your list of accomplishments! Wonderful colourful and full of gorgeousness.
