Butterflies

butterfly card

Once again, I had a wonderful time at the Heirloom Paper Craft Festival this year. I spent time with Greg from Marco’s Paper and Susan Pickering Rothamel from USArtQuest. Susan has a fabulous book The Encyclopedia of Greeting Card Tools and Techniques that is a treasure to have in any crafter’s library.
Inspired by some goodies I took home from the festival, I made this card which I hope my mom will enjoy for Mother’s Day.

I started with a gold butterfly sticker, placed it on a sheet of double sided adhesive  added clear mirco beads and some shimmery Crystal Effectz I painted some beautiful iridescent watercolors on a sheet of paper and added to the back of adhesive. On the pink glossy paper I stamped the oval frame using a liquid Duo adhesive that dries tacky. Covered stamped image with some variegated leafing  Although it’s hard to see, I added some pink chalk around the white oval. The pink paper is mounted on some lovely black velvet paper. Who doesn’t like velvet!
Hope you find time to do something creative today.

all the best,
