Sunday Evening

Hey everyone! Did you have a good weekend? We had a busy one. We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and living in chaos. But the end result will be worth it. :) I just wanted to share a card I made when I first received the Butterfly Thinlits and coordinating stamp set, Butterfly Basics.

When I think of butterflies, I always think of bright colors, so I wanted to create something with this in mind. I cut out the butterfly in black and then used it as a stencil and traced it on a scrap of Shimmery White card stock. Then I used some daubers and starting with the lightest color, Daffodil Delight, I just randomly daubed some on. Then I did the same with Melon Mambo and Island Indigo.Then I tried to glue them together, but I was too impatient to wait for the Mono glue to dry. So I ran the die cut butterfly through the Xyron and adhered it to the Shimmery White. Patience is not one of my virtues sometimes. :)  I stamped the flowers with Soft Sky on the Soft Sky card stock to give it a shadow effect because I wanted the focus on the butterfly. This set is so fun to play with! And the best part is, you can buy them as a bundle and save 15% woohoo!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!
