I'm itching for Spring to arrive so that I can see butterflies in my garden again. But it's so cold today I'm despairing that the temperature will ever get above 0 degrees (C).
This card is for the sketch challenge with Pals Paper Arts here, featuring vellum butterflies.
The card features a Pool Party base, layered with Whisper White cardstock and then with This and That Epic DSP. A strip of Pool Party was attached to the left side of the card upon which 1 1/4" embossed circles were mounted and then the butterflies.
I placed a Pool Party ruffled ribbon on one edge of this Pool Party strip.
The butterflies were stamped with Versa Mark on vellum and embossed with black embossing powder. They were then coloured on the wrong side using markers and the colours blended with an aqua painter. Using the Backyard Basics framelits, the butterflies were die cut, folded in half and attached to the circles using glue dots.
