Hi there!

With my fingers still wet with paint yesterday, I made this card.

This is how I made my butterfly, and how I added the pink "wood grain"

The butterfly was die cut from the card stock in image 2. I added glossy accents and rhinestones to finish of my butterfly.

The strips used to mask in image 3 and 4 is silver peel off stickers.

Image 5 shows the result after peel off's were removed.

Paint used is ordinary acrylic poster paint.

Sentiment cut with Silhouette Cameo

'n Pragstuk!! En so oulik van jou om te wys hoe jy dit gedoen het. Ek het ook die skoenlapper die so ek sal jou een of ander tyd dit moet nadoen - ek dink die kinders sal dit saam met my geniet!
