Flutterbies by butterflies
Hello Everyone Debs today here with a birthday card I made using the fabulous Butterfly Trio.
Using Vesafine I stamped the 3 butterflies and then sprinkled Embossing Glitter in 3colours and heat set it to bring out the sparkle.
You can just see it sparkle in the photo below
For the background I used my favourite medium of the moment, which is Sennelier Watercolours. I first spritzed the page with water and then loaded
my brush with colour. As I touched the page the colour exploded onto the paper whooshing around. I love how the colours run round the page chasing each other and blending together. Of course you need to be mindful of what colours you use, as mixing any combination of primary colours will make brown. Of course if that’s the colour you want, you can mix some beautiful shades of brown, but if browns aren’t what you want, don’t mix your primary colours of red, blue, and yellow.
I dried the page thoroughly and then added black around the edges which acts as a good contrast, and helps the butterflies pop from the page. Adding flowers in plain black added some balance, and for more interest I added black dots.
Above you can see where I added some shadows to the right of the butterflies.
I stuck the page onto a plain white card and now it’s ready to send.
Take care and I’ll see you soon.
