This is the first time that I have made a stair step card - the link for the tutorial was kindly posted by rainmac over on MSE and it was so easy and the finished card was very effective.
I used butterflies that were kindly sent to me by Caroline over on MSE - she has sent me 2 different design and I will be using the other ones on other cards.
I used distress ink to colour the butterflies and then added gems and wire which I curled. I also used the distress ink to colour the Prima flowers as they were more pink than purple.
The cardstock was from Payperbox which I got at the Ally Pally and I used my MS Doily punch.

I'm really please with the result, it looks better than in the photo as it was dark when took the photo.
I used paper downloaded from the web, ribbon, peel offs, pegs and I used my MS Doily punch.

I scored the cake case part with my MS Scoreboard and used some papers that I bought in the US along with some pink cardboard for the card itself. I was pleased with the way it turned out!
Here is the result

Firstly, I tried the Distress Ink that I bought yesterday at the Ally Pally - they were not cheap there but I needed a purple ink!!! I used the blending tool and stamped the new bargain stamp I bought yesterday. I was really pleased with the result and will be using this to put on a card soon.
Yesterday, I managed to get some cheap water pen brushes so was able to try out the Peerless Watercolours. In case you don't know about these fab paints, they are from the US and come in the form of a pad of paper impregnated with different colours. You then use the water brush to lift off the colour. You can get a variety of shades from one colour so can be very subtle or bright depending on what look you want. They are extremely easy to use, I love them!!!!!
