One of the new toys you can NOW purchase from the Lastest Seasonal Catalogue is...a HUGE beautiful butterfly. It's a background stamp size!
What I did for this card is to emboss the Swallowtail butterfly image with black embossing powder. Then I watercolured it in the same colour as the card base..making the darker part on the inside of the wing near the body. The body I used Basic Gray to colour. You don't have to worry about staying within the lines for this one as you are going to cut off all around it..so just use broad washes of colour and play! NO FEAR!!
...cut is out then attach it onto the card front which I had embossed with the beautiful
LOVE this elegant background folder! Added a little bling, a ribbon and a little word stamp! DONE! Easy to recreate in every colour of the Stampin' Up! Family!!
