CWS Mid-Month Inspiration: Butterfly Cards

Friday, April 15, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Have you joined CWS Challenge #1 yet? =)

We're half-way through our first challenge! Thanks to everyone who linked cards already! 

Thanks to all the lovely comments!

We have some more cards to inspire you today...I'm using our sponsor Cre8tive Hands' image: Butterfly Tangles.

Here's my card:

I stamped script on vellum and added some stenciling, using Brilliance ink pads (it dries on glossy surfaces!). I printed 2 butterflies and adhered them by the body only, so the wings could be bent up. I added Dimensional Magic on the body and added some sequins.


I thought I would leave the butterfly uncolored, so the recipient can have fun coloring it!


And I have a second card, since I love butterflies so much...and had new stamps! =)

3. Creative Artiste's Challenge #13: AG with an option to use any of "chipboard, stencils or flowers"

The background was stencil-smooshed (Club Scrap) on watercolor paper (after I sprayed it to make another bg). I layered silver vellum and added the stamped butterflies (SU!). I stamped the sentiment, cut it out and outlined with Copic marker. I added Dimensional Magic and glitter on the butterflies. 
I also added a sentiment to the inside of card:

Stamps and stencil are from Club Scrap.

You have until the end of the month to link up your cards!
