Birthday Butterfly Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a simple and easy birthday card featuring the Butterfly Coterie Collage die. It is using the cut out butterflies from last week's blog post.

Butterflies:

Instructions how to watercolor the paper for the butterflies. Watercolor Open Studios Watercolor paper using a green, blue, yellow and silver paint.  Use a larger sized paint brush for this technique. Spritz both sides of the paper with water then lightly wipe off the any excess water.  Add the paint, starting with the darker colors, by just dabbing on the paper randomly.  Make sure it does not create a pattern and just slightly overlapping the colors as you go.  The colors with slightly blend together.  Using a heat gun, dry the paper.  After dry, die cut the Butterfly Coterie Collage die from the center of the paper.  Use just the butterfly.

Hot foil the Posh Happy Birthday sentiment using silver foil onto the same aqua paper from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror paper pad.  Die cut using the matching die from the set.
