Hi Everyone! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! I am kick starting my week by catching up with a friend for lunch a little later today and then home to do some housework and finalizing some ATC Trades to get into the mail. What have you got planned for your Monday?
I am sharing a butterfly card today which I made late last week. It really started out as a bit of a play with my Faber Castell Gelatos and Big Brush Marker Pens. My butterfly stamps from Dark Room Door just happened to be within reach and I must say I do love them and they are even extra special because I won them. The symbolism of the butterfly is of so many positive emotions such as hope, joy, freedom and happiness that they really were fitting for my card as playing/experimenting and creating generates all of these emotions for me.
For the background I colored this with a combination of Cotton Candy, Metallic Blueberry and and Blueberry Gelatos, also mixed to watercolor consistency. The Blueberry I actually applied with a piece of scrunched up paper dipped in my watercolor mix, and dotted and dabbed across the background and especially the edges.
The Cardstock is Stampin' Up's Soft Suede and the Paper is one I have had since I first started scrapbooking and purchased something like 1000 sheets on Ebay!
Anyway that's all from me today I have to go and think about getting ready to head out! I hope you have a wonderful Mojo Filled and Magical Monday!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
