Watercolors create a soft background for the Summer Meadow Collage and a trio of vellum butterflies. Add a greeting from the Sentimental Iris Clear Stamps Set, gold-glittered accents and turquoise gem stickers. Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with a thrifty design using the remainder of yesterday's watercolored background.
Kaleidacolor dye ink refills are great as liquid watercolors and come in a wide range of beautiful colors.
Cut Summer Meadow Collage from white cardstock - leave a generous border of cardstock.
Place the watercolored background behind it and tape everything securely so it doesn't shift. Diecut through both layers at once. The resulting background wasn't a complete rectangle because portions of it were used on another card - but it won't show. Optional - trim a tiny amount from the edges of the background so the colors won't be visible from the side.
Cut Cascadia Butterfly Trio from lime, purple and turquoise vellum. I cut all three sizes of each so I could try different color and size combinations. If you don't have colored vellum, diecut the butterflies from white vellum, then sponge them with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple, Lime and Jade inks. Yes, Brilliance metallic inks dry on vellum! Air-dry the butterflies - heat-setting them may cause curling.
Cut gold glitter cardstock or heavy paper with the antennae/centers from the Leavenworth Butterfly Trio.
Attach the diecuts to a top-folded 5-½" square card of textured white cardstock.
Stamp the greeting - from the Sentimental Iris Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Verdant VersaFine Clair. Dry the ink, then cut then cut it with the ¾" x 2" Rectangle Basics die. Attach the greeting - use a foam dot on the right edge.
Add turquoise gem stickers.
