Discovering ... Butterflies
I always enjoy Tuesdays. Hubby and I spend the morning pursuing our hobbies then we meet friends at the local watering hole for lunch. In the afternoon we play again and I don't even have to cook dinner. DH makes our tea.
I made this card a few weeks ago on a workshop with Jamie Turvey.
He told us to add washi tape randomly to our cards. Then we put 3 different colours of acrylic paint (our choice) close together on our craft mats and spritzed with water then swiped our cards across the paints.
I chose blue yellow and red as I knew I could get some orange, purple and green from a mixture of those colours. Everbody's card looked very different and I was very pleased with the colours on mine.
We then stamped and embossed the butterfly and masked it before continuing. Everything else was our choice - sentiment, where we placed it and any masks we decided to use. I used a Tim Holt letter mask and embossed with gold then stamped red numbers into spaces at top right and bottom left.
We added die cut cogs and the pen nib to the butterflies body. Job done!
I would like to link this card to the following Challenges:-
