Butterfly Dreams

IMG_9928


I had a bit of time on Tuesday night to create, just because. I really wanted to ink up my new Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dreams stamps and cut out the images with my Scan N Cut. I started out by watercolouring a pink background that I cut down to 3 3/4" x 5" when it was dry I spritzed it with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and adhered it to the card base with foam tape. Then I stamped the butterfly image in ombre orange to yellow using Altenew and Papertrey Ink inks. The Scan N Cut did a perfect job of cutting the image that I popped up with another piece of foam tape. Finally I added a few sequins. The elusive shimmer spritz is beautiful in real life, but it is meant to be enjoyed by the person that receives this card!

Sometimes just-because creating is the best, isn't it? This is so pretty! The ScanNCut definitely did well with the butterfly. Great background, too.

I love how you blended your inks on the butterfly, and your watercolor wash is gorgeous, Tracey! I'll bet it's super sparkly IRL, too :)
So sorry I've been MIA...been feeling poorly, but will be back for a visit asap ♥
