These butterfly dies drove me to my wits' end and I was ready to give up and destash them!
Then I remembered a technique from Online Card Classes which taught us to emboss using dies and then water colour the image.
So here I have two cards that I have made with panels embossed with the troublesome butterfly die from Spellbinders Shapeabilities! It is so easy to do and so beautiful !
For the first card, I did a light watercolour wash around the butterflies in grey, popped on some gemstones and mounted the panel onto a silver card base.
simple and elegant.
For the second card, I water coloured the embossed area as well as around it and again added gemstones and popped it onto a kraft card base.
I am trying these days to make cards without sentiments…just for versatility.
I am also trying to change my style of photographing..what do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by…
Have a great day!
