A summer favorite - the classic Reverse Butterfly Collage - is great for a watercolored card. Add a trio of glittered hexagons from the Honeycomb Square for sparkly accents and it's ready for any occasion. Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple summer design for you.
Cut smooth white cardstock and watercolor paper with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die. Cut the white cardstock with the Reverse Butterfly Collage.
Paint the watercolor paper with diluted, overlapping layers of Kaleidacolor Dye Ink Refills - they're great as liquid watercolors. Air-dry it for a few minutes, then lightly spritz it with water. Heat-set it. Trim the edges just a tiny bit so they don't unexpectedly peek out along the sides of the card
Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of smooth white cardstock.
Cut three of the butterfly center/antennae from the Morning Garden Butterflies set from gold mirror cardstock.
Cut purple glitter cardstock with the Honeycomb Square die to create a stash of sparkly little hexagon accents.
Paint some extra watercolor papers while your supplies are still out and you'll have a stash of pretty backgrounds for future projects.
Big Thanks to everyone from Monday's BEYOND THE BOX Memory Box class at Impress. Hope you liked the cards - and the different ways we used our Memory Box and Poppystamps dies and stamps. Special thanks too - Shari, Becca and Erin - for all of your help! We'll have a second BEYOND THE BOX class on June 16th, followed by the SUMMER HEARTS class.
Thanks very much for stopping by - see you again this weekend...
