Butterfly Delight


I have a butterfly card to share with you.  I felt like doing some watercoloring today.  The roses were stamped on watercolor paper in StazOn Timber Brown.  They were colored with Rich Razzleberry ink with the leaves in Old Olive.  I used a blender pen for both.

The script and splatter were stamped in Crumb Cake.  I did stamp both images on scrap paper first so I would obtain a lighter image.

To create the butterflies I used the Memory Box Leavenworth Trio die and Cascadia Trio die.  All the pieces were cut from Rich Razzleberry paper.  To lighten the underside of each butterfly I sponged ColorBox Frost White on the paper.  The top pieces were spritzed with Tzukineko Sheer Frost Shimmer Spritz and then assembled.  They were popped up using dimensions.

Before gluing the layers I wrapped a piece of 3/8" Rich Razzleberry Taffeta ribbon around the front and created a bow.

The flourish on the inside is from the Stampin' Up Bliss set.  It was stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  I wanted it to be light so it wouldn't detract from any writing on the inside.  No. 5 was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown.  This will be used as a blank notecard.

I hope you have some wonderful plans for the weekend.

Thanks for visiting.

Donna, you've inspired me to pull out my Elements of Style stamp set and try some water coloring! You've created such a beautiful card ... love the color combination, too. I love your idea of sponging the frost white ink over the rich razzleberry card stock to lighten the bottom layer of the butterflies.
