Burlap and Butterfly
I've seen so many cards out in blogland that are similar to this so decided to try one and see what happened. Mine looks different of course and I'm not half as impressed with mine as I was some of the other ones I saw - but at least I tried.
This really is one of those cards that looks better in real life - maybe because of the shine on the top butterfly where I used some Frost White Paint. I stenciled the light blue in the background with Tumbled Glass, added some Certainly Celery green to the leaves, attempted to do some twine loopy things, then cut a piece of burlap in the "bug", punched a white circle and mounted the Impression Obsession butterfly die. The underside of the butterfly was die cut in a piece of purple card stock.
That burlap.......ah......Connie, over at My Grammy's Attic sent me several pieces of this stuff and it's actual burlap but has a backing on it so it cuts great and is wonderful. Thanks again Connie!
Thanks for stopping by..........
