It's A Butterfly Day

Hi, Diane here with you today. Seems like summer is just "fluttering" away, doesn't it?

Speaking of summer, I have been spending a bit of time in my gardens and have noticed numerous, gorgeous butterflies. I based my card on those that I have been seeing.

I started my card with a background I made from stamping a B Line Designs stamp.  I used one that is now out of stock, but the B Line Designs My Garden of Flowers would work just as well! I stamped the words 5 to 6 times, basically just to make a "word" background.


Next I stamped B Line Designs Large Butterfly on card stock with Versamark, which I had first rubbed with an Anti- static bag to keep fingerprints off. Then heat set with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Black Detail embossing powder.

Using Tim Holtz Distressed Inks, I sponged color on my butterfly with the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool.

I wanted to break up the background a bit, so I added
Memory Box Chesapeake Circle die under it, cut from
Stardream Serpentine Pearlized Metallic paper.

To finish I added an orange gingham bow.
