I'm sure you've been as busy and can relate to the overfull days and hectic hours of the holiday preparations that have been going on around here. Craziness!
I was challenged by Laurie's terrific Faux Stained Glass technique at Make It Monday and had to sneak in a few minutes to give this a try.
A card with airy colors and the freshness of spring. Ahhh! I needed that break.
I used the PTI Bitty Butterflies Cover Plate Die for the background. I colored the vellum using Distress Inks in Broken China and Shaded Lilac. For the focal point, I cut a butterfly from the PTI Butterflies Cover Plate Die, and trimmed out one of the butterflies with scissors. I cut it from white card stock and blended ink to color it. Afterwards I added droplets of the ink, splattered, and a few spritzes of Perfect Pearls added to water for texture and shine.
Wrapping a bit of tulle (with a teeny bit of glitter in it) behind the butterfly and adding sequins made me happy!
I used stamps from the Fresh Bouquet set.
Hope this finds you thinking that, whatever is going on, "You've got this!"
Delight in your craft
Make something beautiful!
