Make a wish

Hi there!

The 3 butterflies I colored for day 2 (yesterday on Instagram) of the Daily marker 30 day challenge, found their way to a card!



I colored a piece of watercolor paper with Derwent inktense color blocks and used it to cut 3 butterflies with my Silhouette. I did some inlay die cutting, and then with the 3 butterflies in place, I embossed the front panel with a Sizzix embossing folder. I added wink of stella to the  butterflies and added the sentiment.

The font I used to cut the "wish" is called LillyBelle.
The "make a" part was created digitally using the font Dream Orphans.

Great card! I would have been afraid to emboss an inlaid piece for fear of it "popping" but you made it work! Your coloring is scrumptious..

Really pretty butterflies, Hannelie. The watercoloring is perfect for that photo inspiration, along with the embossing you've done; both capture the photo wonderfully. Great design, and beautifully executed. Lovely card! Bev

J'aime beaucoup ces couleurs et l'embossage en dernier.. les couleurs en sont encore plus chatoyantes.

Joe, ek hou van daai EF wat jy gebruik het, vrou - ongelooflik hoe wonderlik dit by die inspirasiefoto pas, ne!!!! Ek is mal oor hoe jy die kleure van die skoenlappers gedoen het en hoe jy hulle rangskik het!! Die sentiment lyk vir my pragtig en die drie swart pereltjies is perfek om alles mooi af te rond!!! Nog 'n lieflike skepping, vrou!!!
Groete en geniet die res van die dag, hoor!!!
