Butterfly Love Card

I need one more Valentine card. Each year I make one for my mom and another for my husband. This will be for my husband. I have posted before how he likes vivid colors. I like to challenge him back by making his cards in the clean and simple style but with very intense colors. He also likes the blueprints style of stamps. I hope he enjoys this one.

I used the Splitcoast Stampers color challenge colors. I also used this weeks CAS Sketch challenge for the first time. When coloring the background I use a colorless blender to soak the paper around the blue background to achieve a disappearing effect. I like this technique and use it alot.

Initially I figured I would add a small stamped sentiment but as I searched through my DSP collection I found a 12 x 12 pad with this design paper that just happened to have a curved "LOVE" and that took care of that.

I used Stardust Stickles in the yellow portion of the wings and added a rhinestone in the O of "LOVE". I would normally cut the image out using some fancy edge die and mount it to the top of the base, so for this project, I cut out a square window and mounted the butterfly behind the opening. The curved stitched opening was made using one of my mom's dies. I am guessing it is from Gina Marie, but need to research which set it was and will update once I've added it to my supplies list..

Copic Sketch markers used: 

Butterfly Wings Outside: R39, R89
