fun butterfly

Hi, here I am again. This time I have the card I made for the technique challenge on SCS. Wrapped some drywall tape around my brayer and rolled it in acrylic paint and then rolled on my card stock. What a fun technique. Of course there were a few bumps in the road along the way.

I was going to make a horizontal card, but when I rolled the paint, I ended up a bit crooked, so I decided to trim it off and straighten it, so I made a vertical card instead.

The flourishes are from SU and Rubbernecker, stamped in navy over the paint. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The navy layer is punched with my eyelet border punch.

I made the top layer of the butterfly from used dryer sheets. I will try to do a tutorial on how to make them. A rolled up glue dot is put under each wing, because the wings are translucent and I thought dimensional tape would show through. The glue dots are a bit less visible. The body is made with beads on thread.

I added some faux stitching around the edges to finish off the card.

What's in it?
stamps: priceless (SU), flourish set (Rubbernecker), sentiment (vintage butterflies - Cornish Heritage Farms)
ink: night of navy, versamark
paper: whisper white, pacific point, night of navy
other: eyelet border punch, brayer, drywall tape, white acrylic paint, cuttlebug, beautiful butterflies Sizzix bigz die, dryer sheet, iridescent ice ep, heat gun, sewing machine, beads, thread

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed.
