Shaker Card - Butterflies & Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers #3

I am very enamoured with Shaker Cards lately and this card in particular, which features more of the butterflies from Cherry Green's new release of stamps!
                            
The background that I've created for a few of these samples is one of my favourite techniques and I'm planning a video tutorial, so keep checking back!

Let's Dance! - Cherry Green & Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers #2

Called "Let's Dance", this stamp from Cherry Green, would not normally be in keeping with my style.  

However! Paired with Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and a modern clean and simple card style,  I really loved the outcome! 
       
Please join us on Hochanda at 6pm for the live launch of Cherry Greene's new stamp collection.
              
Let's Dance! A card by Sam Lewis AKA The Crippled Crafter .
                 
This card taught me to try new things, to work outside of your usual style, because you may just surprise yourself.
