Good morning! Sometimes you just need a quick card. I was inspired by the Classy Cards challenge It's Okay to be Negative. I tend to use flowers on almost all my cards but as soon as I saw the challenge I thought of butterflies.
I used a wash of Twinkling H20's on the background. The entire card shimmers! After the card dried I flicked extra paint off the end of my paintbrush to get a paint-splatter effect.
The butterfly was cut using the Memory Box Swirl Butterfly die. I trimmed the top layer 1/2 inch smaller than the A2 card base but did it after I'd painted and cut the butterfly to make sure I liked the way the butterfly was centered. I also used my paintbrush to flick clear glossy accents across the top of the card. There are patches of clear dimensional shimmer which makes it look almost wet in spots.
Last, I glued the butterfly into position before popping up the top layer around and over her. Thanks for stopping by!
