'A Cube for All Seasons'

October 2016
'Circles and Squares'

My second 'make' for this month's Clarity Challenge!
  • Cardstock:- White 
  • Stamps:- Clarity - Butterfly Tree
  • Inkpads;- Ranger Distress - Weathered Wood, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Stormy Sky; Archival Black; Encore Silver. 
  • Miscellaneous:- Photocube, Moon mask, glue pen; glitter - clear, lilac, purple, yellow/gold mix, orange/gold, chocolate; Micron pen, Sharpie - black, chalk pen;

  1. Cut five squares of white card to fit each visible side of glass cube.
  2. Place moon mask in position. Stamp Butterfly Tree on four squares using Archival Black.
  3. Blend over seasonal coloured inks.
  4. Add coloured glitter to each season.
  5. Stamp and mask medium butterfly four times on last square, using suitable seasonal colours. Using sticky notes with ripped edges, mask a triangle and blend over colours to match the season. Repeat on remaining three sides. Remove moon mask. 
  6. Ink small butterfly area of Butterfly Tree and WITHOUT using a stamp block or mount, press onto gaps as seen in photograph. Draw an irregular Micron line to demarcate each triangle. 
  7. Add 'snow' with a chalk pen to Winter.
. . . . . And here we have 'A Cube for all Seasons!'

Best wishes in the 'Circles or Squares' challenge!


  1. Hi Shelagh love what you've created here - such a clever idea. xx

    1. Thanks, Angela. An over-indulgence of the four seasons this month, I think. I picked up this cube last year and meant to use it for the Christmas Challenge 2015 - then changed my mind!!! ;~}
