Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today, I’ve been busy designing classes for July. There are always so many wonderful things to play with, it can be hard to decide. A good kind of hard. Once I was through with the “work” part of my day, I took some time to create. In fact, I take time to create almost every day. Today’s creation is a Beautiful Day watercolor butterfly card.
Beautiful Day Watercolor Butterfly
I set out to do two things with today’s card.
First, I wanted to play with a new color.
And second, I wanted to watercolor.
The new color I chose is Gorgeous Grape.
As a card base, it makes this card really pop!
For the focal layer, I used Shimmery White cardstock and
swirled on some Gorgeous Grape ink refill.
On a separate piece of Shimmery White, I
painted on a wash of Lemon Lime Twist ink refill.
Once it was dry, I used the butterfly from Beautiful Day
and my Stamparatus to stamp the image in Gorgeous Grape.
I stamped twice to give it a deeper tone.
This way, it doesn’t get lost in the Gorgeous Grape background.
After fussy cutting the butterfly, I tucked in some loops of
Gold Metallic Thread before adhering the butterfly with Dimensionals.
Towards the bottom, I added Lemon Lime Twist Ruffled Ribbon combined with Gold Cord.
Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are the perfect adhesive for this.
And, the final details are a few gold sequins.
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my Beautiful Day watercolor butterfly card!
