Well, I seem to be making a lot of butterfly cards right now. I guess I am just in a butterfly kind of mood? I have been wanting to try the technique I used on this card for awhile and I keep just not doing it. Well, today was the day (thanks to a bit of a nudge from my nephew) and I love how it turned out, but I have a couple of things still to work on with it.
Second guessing myself, something I do a lot. I had the idea for this card in my head, and I had to get it out. I think it turned out kind of cool, but I have been second guessing myself about it quite a bit. The thing is that I have a weird feeling that I have seen something similar to the background roses somewhere else. One way or the other it was a fun card to make!
Yay! Stencils! I had a lot of fun playing with stencils on this card. Even if the ink didn’t stay nicely in the area I was working on, I just covered the mishaps with sequins. I am in love with the new blending brush from Ranger. I want to get one for each color family.
Almost ready to get my tinfoil hat out… When I saw this sketch it felt a bit like someone was reading my mind. I keep thinking about these butterfly dies and wanting to use them, and I came across the flower brads a bit ago and keep trying to remember to add them to a spring card. This sketch was perfect for both things!
