Elliana Border and Butterflies
by Shelby Thomas

Good morning everyone.  Shelby with you today to bring hopefully just a little cheer to your day.


I pulled out my distress inks (again) to create the background.  The colors used were Wild Honey, Tumbled Glass and Hickory Smoke.  The texture was added with a stencil and distress paint (antique linen) applied through the stencil.  The birds (trio of doves) was cut from watercolor paper using the same colors, but I used the refills instead of the pad which with the same amount of water creates a strong color.


I die cut the Elliana border on some shimmer white linen paper and on top I layered a couple of different butterfly dies.  I love to look to see all the different ways I can use the dies and often time, cutting elements from the die gives a lot more flexibility in the use of the die.  The sentiment was stamped with Ranger Archival black ink.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit today, and I hope the rest of your week is fantastic







gorgeous, beautiful sunny colors!

Thanks Debbie!

So glad you like the card Ellie:)
