Pretty Butterfly

 Hi there!

I fell in love with this butterfly the moment I saw it in the Silhouette store. It's been waiting patiently for me in my library to be cut and put on a card. Today is the day!  

I used :

  • Butterfly design #63295 from the Silhouette store
  • Adirondack inks - Sunset Orange & Sunshine Yellow
  • Versamark ink and white sparkle embossing powder (Great Impressions)
  • Sentiment from Uniko  : Simply said blocks stamp set
  • Altenew Tiny bubbles stencil
  • Silhouette cameo

I made the BG by stenciling the Adirondack inks to the card base. I thought the embossing powder would stick , but it didn't, so I added a layer of Versamark ink and tried again. I initially thought the embossing power was clear sparkle... but as you can see it's not clear, but white. I loved the look even though it wasn't what I envisioned so I am sharing it anyway!

Thanks for visiting me today!

That butterfly is definitely gorgeous! I love just the tiny bit of warm color on your card. It reminds me of a warm, spring day.
