Changing Butterflies

Hello, everyone.  I did something different for today's card.  I was inspired by the Splash it On challenge at Annabelle Stamps so I really splashed it on!  I love how this turned out!  I used my Perfect Pearls on kraft cardstock to create an autumn background of fallen leaves.


The butterfly image is a free digi from Annabelle Stamps, which I coloured with pencils.  I mounted my splashed-on background on green cardstock, which covered a white card base.  I stamped the sentiment in green and embellished with three gold dew drops that I won from Robin's Nest.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stampAnnabelle Stamps
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Suzanne Cannon for Quiet Fire Designs)
  • Ink:  StazOn Forest Green
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Perfect Pearls:  Golden Jade, Nutmeg, Ginger Peach, Cranberry, Mustard Green (LuminArte)
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (kraft), Walmart (green), Domtar (white)
  • Dew drops:  Robin's Nest
