September Teasers Day 2 {Winged Beauties}

Welcome to Day 2 of Teaser Time week with My Favorite Things! As always, you can see full set reveals, prize information and a full list of participating designers for today's featured products at the MFT Blog. Today I'm teasing you with Mona's gorgeous new butterfly set, Winged Beauties. If you're looking for that go-to butterfly set, it's right.here.folks.

 
I'd recently seen a really cool color-blocked card (probably Pinterest) and thought it would make for a great contrast with the beautiful, floaty butterflies from Winged Beauties. I also wanted some depth to my stamping, as if the butterflies were fluttering around in a random cluster, so I used three different colors of ink to achieve this look: Steel Blue, Steel Grey and Sweet Tooth on Steel Grey card stock.

I love, love, love the variety in sizes of butterflies available in Winged Beauties which lent itself perfectly for the look and feel I wanted. A single strip of Lemon Drop card stock adds a wow-pow punch and is stamped with a sentiment from Fall Foliage in Steel Blue ink.

The inside of my card carries on with the same stamping and color blocking look at the card front. A large, open butterfly stamped in Sweet Tooth pigment ink is topped with another sentiment from Fall Foliage stamped in Steel Grey ink on a Steel Grey layer.

I hope you've enjoyed today's Teaser Time post featuring Winged Beauties! Like I said, it's a must-have butterfly set with so many options. Please stop back Saturday for more MFT Teaser Time fun, and don't forget that the MFT Blog has complete Teaser Time information including full set reveals, prize information and links to each designer teasing along each day!
