So happy with how soft and sweet this card turned out. Sometimes you just need a soft, sweet, thinking of you card.
To get the solid butterfly and body parts, I used the Asti Butterfly Wings die. (body cut in black) The Asti Butterfly Wings die cut stays attached to the card at the body but you can easily clip them out or cut them in a piece of cardstock, positioning it each time so that it comes out directly in the negative space left from cutting out the Harrington Butterflies. (do the die cut template thing) I know, I should make a video of it! hehe
I love how this card turned out. A little Distress ink watercoloring…Tumbled Glass on the base panel, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry on the butterfly wings. Where the two meet, it kinda makes an orangish/coral like color.
The sentiment is from the Springtime Bunnies stamp set. I glued on 3 Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins.
The next card is the same Harrington Butterflies die combined with a few others.
I started building on an A2 kraft color card-base, added a 4.25 in. x 5.5 in. white panel that I die cut with the Zimmer Oval Background die, topped with the Calla Oval Wreath die and Harrington Butterflies die. I used the Asti Butterfly Wings die again cut in watercolor and black cardstock.
This time I watercolored the butterfly wings with Picked Raspberry and Shaded Lilac Distress inks and a waterbrush. I sprayed out some pearl shimmer spray on my craft mat and painted it on the wings after the watercoloring dried. Carefully because it will remove color.
I die cut the Calla Oval Wreath in white cardstock, left the cut in the die and embossed it through the Big Shot. Leaving the cut oval in the die still, I turned it over to the back side of the die and added Distress inks through the holes in the die, coloring the flowers.
Linking both my cards to some challenges…
Thanks for stopping by today! It was fun to work with some Memory Box/poppystamps products again. More to come…
