I am playing along with Wee Memories Color Inspiration. This picture inspired the Rainbow motif
I am also playing along with Hero Arts monthly contest. I used the sketch on the far right.Moxie Fab challenged us to make a card set
Here is a close up of one of them
So I love Jenni Bowlin's butterflies. I love the way they are packaged. I love the colors and patterns. I just love 'em!
but I don't own any of them. So I decided to make my own.
I used my cricut Sentimentals cartridge to cut out 30 butterflies. I trimmed off the antennas so I could fit more butterflies on the card. I stamped 5 butterflies for each card in the same color but with a different Hero Arts background stamp. I used all distress inks: barn door, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, peeled paint, broken china, and dusty concord. I wanted to use rhinestones for their bodies but didn't have enough black. Enamel essentials to the rescue! I love the way it makes perfect little circles.
I colored a strip of white with the coordinated colored and layered a white banner with a sentiment over it. The butterflies were adhered with their bodies flat and the wings popped up on foam. Each color has a different sentiment.
I finished them off by adding 3 rhinestones. There are no stickles on these cards, can you believe it? Me either!!
Now for the giveaway! I used 6 Hero Arts set to make these cards. 5 background and 1 sentiment. The first person to guess all 6 correctly will win a little something special from me!
Off to work I go thanks for sticking with me :)
