Friday Night Fun!
Hey Happy Friday. Lets me show you something SpecKathular! Made this butterfly card this evening. Sending Hugs to whomever needs one. I used pre cut cardstock purchased from Michaels. It's by craft smith and it was on sale for 5 bucks and there are 80 with envelopes in various color! 4 1/4 by 5 /2 What a deal! I cut 80 pound black card stock cut to 4 by 5 1/4 and embossed the butterfly scene with a darice folder. I then with my finger light spread texture past in gold by Faber Castell. I had a piece of watercolor paper I had made earlier in the week using Tim Holtz distress oxide inks and die cut it with a butterfly die I got free from a magazine. I used the same butterfly die cut from Anna Griffin Deco foil kit and adhered together. I cut the hugs die from Lawn fawn. Very simple but very SpecKathular!
Craft card base pre-made from Hobby Lobby. This card base measures 5.5 X 4.0.
I used Tim Holtz distressed ink in colors mustard seed, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, salty ocean, peacock feathers, seedless preserves.
I dragged the small cubes across the paper on the diagonal. Paper is watercolor paper and cut to 5 X 4. I sprinkled water on background paper for what I call a mottled look (that's a dental term). I used a white gel pen to make faux stitching on the banner. I used crayola fine line markers on cloud and water brush pen to blend colors. I used Spellbinders die called Oh Happy Day. I used a stamp set by Stephanie Barnard. Inside die is from lawn fawn. Adhesive used Art Glitter Glue, foam squares and a tape runner.
