Hi friends. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I haven't done much creating lately. Earlier in the week, I played a little bit with my new gelli plate, which my honey gave me for our anniversary. What fun, but I didn't get to play very long. I can see where this would be lots of fun to do with a group. Anyway, today I took one of the pieces I had made with the gelli plate and added some more to it with stencils and paint. Then I cut it up into card sized pieces. I used one on my card.
I wanted to make a card for a challenge on the Outlaw Women Artists Emporium facebook page, things that make you smile. Since butterflies make me smile, I pulled out one of my favorite old SU stamp sets, wonderful wings, and stamped the butterfly on the background and a second time on a piece of white card stock. I colored the second one with ink and a sponge and then cut it out. I attached the body to the card directly over the first butterfly, and added some dimensional tape under the wings.
I added a trail with faux stitching, some thin strips of black card stock and some dots with a black Pitt pen, so that it also fit the technique challenge on SCS to do some crazy stitzhing.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
