Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m excited to share one more way to use the watercolor backgrounds … I’ll show you how to make Watercolor Wonder Butterflies. Who said these beautiful backgrounds can only be used as backgrounds? Today I’m going to pull them up center stage on our card ….
I’m using the Brilliant Wings Dies to create these fun looks … On the small butterfly, I just cut it out of the watercolor background created in the video. The larger butterfly was die cut, and the background was trimmed to accent the butterfly and give it a 3-D look. I popped up the butterfly by cutting a small piece out of the Stampin’ Dimensonals.
My greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped with the Rock -n- Roll technique. I inked up the stamp with Parakeet Party first, and then rolled the stamp in the Bermuda Bay. I choose that color because the Parakeet Party and Bermuda Bay used in the watercolor background change color a little when blended together.
The greeting has a Basic Black mat as do the butterflies and were mounted onto my Coastal Cabana front that I embossed with the 3-D Fern embossing folder. I added Wink of Stella to my butterflies before mounting onto the black mat. To complete my card I added the Mat Black Dots to create additional depth and texture and to draw your eye around the entire card.
Funny, but I always think of my Mom when I use or stamp with butterflies … she loved them and had them all over her house ❤
