hey I am doing good this morning it's only 4:22am and I am all ready starting my post!
so today I am going to share my butterfly card swap
I do need my friends advice though
I am at a stand still and just undecided as to weither I should add a ribbon or anything to it???
will you please help me???
okay here's where I started first
I did a lot of research to find the most beautiful butterfly!
then I stamped the All a Flutter Butterfly stamp on Velum Cardstock
I used black craft ink and emboss them with clear
I used Pacific Blue and alot of different shimmer to paint my butterflies
I coloured on the back and front of each butterfly
then I added some white gel pen in some areas
I also covered the entired butterfly in Crystal Effects
now I am onto the leaves or something to put my butterfly on
what I wanted and what I got were two entirely different things he he
okay onto something else this is just not the answer
then I changed gears
took out the brayer and tired to do the background and let me tell you I tried a lot of different colours
but in the end this is what I did
I went with So Saffron in the middle and Tangerine Tango on the top
then I did
then I picked a little more so saffron and Soft suede
okay then I stamped the grass from
Inspired by nature
I did that in Chocolate chip
now for some cattails
I put a lot of Crystal Effects on some Textured Chocolate Chip Card Stock
then I punched them out
then I used the Tombo adhesive with a stylus to adhere both my butterflies and the cattails
I put the Tombo on my grass with a stylus
and now for the card
ouh buuuuutttttttt.............. I am not sure if it's done
I need YOUR help please???
so what do you think??
do I need a ribbon or a greeting
the last layer is not adhered that's why it looks crooked it he he :-)
I really love the look of the butterfly
and my cattails
one more photo and then I need your feed back
PLEASE - PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE!!!!
what do you think???
do I need a greeting
help me please
thank you my loyal blogging friends
I so gratefully appreciate your help
have a super good day!
