I am loving this week's Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp to add texture so much that I made a second card. Instagram is filled with all things Springy and Butterfly related now and I just had to jump on the bandwagon. Since I am waiting on my butterfly dies from the SSS Fluttering By collection I thought I would take out 2 of my older butterfly dies from
SSS called Devonshire and Paulina. The 2 smaller butterflies are SU punches.
So much inspiration on this card but mostly from Melissa Phillips at Lilybean Paperie. She has a way of making every card look magical! On a recent card for the SSS blog hop she sponged her butterflies with distress ink, sprayed with water and splattered white paint on top.
LOVE THOSE RESULTS!
I didn't glue the wings down so they could fly off the page.
I layered those beautiful butterflies on top of the Papertrey Ink Shapeshifters Oval 1 die and I used the Aqua Mist Bitty Big paper as a background. Since I know my mom will love this card I finished it off with a Happy Mother's Day sentiment from PTI's Butterfly Blooms stamp set. I heat embossed it with white powder onto a strip of Aqua Mist Bitty Big paper and popped it up on foam tape. All that was left was to add some sparkly clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and my card was done.
Thanks so much for stopping by today to take a look!
I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday, I know I am!
