Friendly Butterfly

The biggest reason I make cards is to celebrate my friends and enjoy special moments with them.  Today's card is certainly one of those cards I created for a special friend.


Blue-Butterfly-1


I used watercolor paper and stamped the Swallowtail Butterfly with Versamark ink.  It's a clear, sticky ink and when you add embossing powder on top, the design is revealed.


Blue-Butterfly-7


My special friend loves blue so I used my pretty watercolors and mixed a couple of colors.  I painted over the white embossing and ended up with this fantastic panel.  For the background I used a white pearl paint and added a touch of light tan to contrast with the body of the butterfly.


Blue-Butterfly-5


I stamped the Love sentiment and mounted the panel on some navy cardstock.


Love you, my friend!
