Butterfly in Pink

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card I made using an Inkadinkado butterfly stamp. The butterfly was part of a scene, so I fussy cut it to stand alone on this card. I colored it using white and pink Liquid Pearls to give it a bit of shimmer. I used pearls for the butterfly's body.




The pink circle was made using a Martha Stewart butterfly corner punch. I stamped a script stamp on the pink and white circle backgrounds. Enamel dots and pearls were added randomly on the card. I haven't used fibers in a long time. I rummaged through my fiber bag and found some to make a bow with.

The light pink background was made by using a resist technique. I pounced plastic wrap into white Liquid Pearls and then pounced it on white card stock. When it dried I sponged over the card stock with pink Distress ink. The Liquid Pearls acted as a resist.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
