Butterfly Smile


The Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today had us visiting the world of miniatures. Fascinating and amazing work all done in miniatures. I picked this dragonfly for my inspiration and as I do not have a dragonfly I did a butterfly. It is snowing in my neck of the woods today, so I added a lot of layers to my butterfly as I wanted colour in my grey world. I stamped the butterfly with navy ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then sprayed my paper and dropped water moving the piece around to allow the paint to run - then drying and adding more colour until I was happy. I stamped the sentiment and finished with sequins and crystals - candy for the butterfly!

Kia, this is gorgeous! I love this butterfly, and your watercoloring is amazing and really brings this sweet creature alive! And wow, what a background! Love the beautiful matting that really finishes off your card perfectly, my friend! Hugs!
