It is -17 degrees in Duluth right now, and I am ready for spring! I recently got the Papillon Potpourri set along with both sizes of the butterfly punch, and I thought the butterflies would be perfect for a spring card.
I stamped the butterflies onto Whisper White cardstock, using black craft ink. I sprinkled on Irridescent Ice EP and then heat embossed. Tip: When heating the Irridescent Ice, overheating will melt the glitter! I watercolored the butterflies with ink and an aquapainter. I used Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, and Daffodil Delight. After they dried, I punched them out. I love that the punches fit the stamps exactly with no white around the edges!
For the orange layer, I chose a sheet of DSP from Summer Smooches. I stamped the largest label from Layered Labels in Tangerine Tango then cut it out using the Big Shot. I used the Essentials paper piercing pack around the edges then added white gel pen stitches.
The banner is 4 X 1 1/2 Real Red Coredinations cardstock embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder then sanded. I used the 1 3/8 square punch to cut the tail at the bottom. The cardbase is Daffodil Delight.
