Butterfly Card Just In Time For Spring!

Remember the technique we learned on yesterday's Money-Saving Monday post?  Well, I finished the card and thought it was just silly to wait til Wednesday to post it, so here it is a day early!


So I won't go into any massive detail about the making of this card since you saw most of it yesterday.  I did, however, decide to use some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers to add some color to the white cardstock.  I lightly inked around the images leaving some white space to imply sky and clouds.  Oh, and in case you would like to try this particular card, I used Garden Art and Lots of Words Stamp Sets, both from Mark's Finest Papers.  Next, I used a white Gelly Roll pen to color the bodies of the butterflies and then used a Stardust pen to give a little shine to their bodies and highlight some places on their wings.  Some matting and a simple sentiment with some brads finishes this baby off!!


Hopefully, you can see a little of the sparkle in the photo above!

Thanks for all the sweet and useful feedback about yesterday's MSM post.  I plan on getting back to the blog's "roots" and doing lots more like that!  Stay tuned!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Wow, so beautiful. That soft wash of color added to the cardstock is perfect with the butterflies!
