Mixed Media Bold Butterfly Card

April 28, 2017 2 Comments

Today, I had some fun playing with the Watercolor Pencils to create a Bold Butterfly card. The finished card has a mixed media feel. To tell the truth, most of the cards we make are a type of mixed media.  Let’s take a look!

I had so much fun playing with the Watercolor Pencils!!

The Bold Butterfly Framelits were used to cut a butterfly from

Watercolor Paper.

Then, I drew on the butterfly with the Watercolor Pencils.

I just put down a base of bits of color.

Then, I used a damp brush to cause the color to move.

Tip: You’ll want to clean your brush as you move around so that the color doesn’t become muddy.

Blending the colors gives a nice undertone to the finished butterfly.

Next, I drew in some lines and curves with the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil.

Then, I took a damp brush one last time and used it to soften the lines.

I gently shaped the butterfly so that it dried with raised wings.

Finally, I brushed the butterfly with Clear Wink of Stella.

Now, it was time to layer the card.

I wrapped a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Affectionately Yours washi

before cutting it with a pair of Layering Squares Framelits.

A Lace Doily and a strip of Silver Sequin Trim were

added before topping with the Bold Butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my

Bold Butterfly card.
