Mixed Media {Mon}: Smooshed Butterfly Cards

Monday, July 17, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

More cards to share today...I've been "very" productive cleaning the house! =)

I sprayed some inks on plastic, smooshed white cardstock on, and let dry.
Once dried, I used a stencil and sprayed more ink on it. I let it dry and trimmed a strip for this card.
I stamped butterfly, cut it out, watercolored it with Derwent Artbar and let it dry.
After it dried, I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Pen clear overlay...check out the shine:

I adhered it by the body and added the stamped sentiment.

1. CAS Waterclor July: Butterfly

2. HLS July Watercolor Challenge: Optional Twist: Blue

3. HLS July CAS: Birthday


I used a sketch from Fusion...
I use the same smoosh technique for the back panel (in purple) and also inked the edges with metallic ink. I adhered the pink panel on, dry embossed them and rubbed white ink on to give the flowers a pop of color!
I added the butterflies and a strip of washi tape.

I made this leaf embellishment using a mold, my glue gun and green glue stick. I altered it by brushing gold glitter on it and added it to card:
