The first part of March is perfect time to work in my garden. So this last this weekend, I went to the nursery to replace all my plants that I’d lost over the winter. I especially wanted to rebuild and expand my butterfly garden. Something about seeing the colorful butterflies flittering around really changes my mood.
So I’m here today with this slimline card featuring Build A Butterfly Add On stamp set. I stamped the butterflies three times using Eclipse Black ink. I then grabbed an assortment of Copic markers in rainbow of colors. It took quite a bit of blending to get the rainbow affect, but so worth the time.
For the background, I grabbed an array of Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink and created another rainbow of color on Yupo paper. The colors are so much more vibrant with the Eclipse Black cardstock. After prepping my card stock with a anti-static tool, I stamped the sentiment using Clear Color Hive ink and heat set white embossing powder.
To assemble the card, I glued the yupo paper to Ultra White Heavy Weight Slimlime Card Base and then the Eclipse black die cut cardstock on top of that. I added dimensional foam tape to the multicolored butterfly and adhered the solid butterflies directly to the card.
I hope you like my card. Can’t wait to have some of these butterflies in my garden
Until next time – Jackie
