Hello stampers! Today's card is my design team card for Create with Connie and Mary using the bright combo of Berry Burst, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay. I also used the butterfly inspiration from Global Design Project, the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday, and I'm also entering Stamp Ink Papers designer's choice challenge. I love this big, bold butterfly and have so much fun coloring it in each time!
I embossed the butter fly in white on watercolor paper, watercolored with my ink pads and aqua painter, and fussy cut it out. I layered it on a circle of Berry Burst, and then on a pearlized doily....I actually used the the opposite side, the plain white side.
I love the polka dot DSP from the color family packs and used the Bermuda Bay here. The Berry Burst card base seemed a little too much, so I toned it down with a piece of vellum. Vellum can be tricky to work with since you can see adhesive through it. I added a little bit of white thread to help keep the top and bottom tacked down, since I couldn't use adhesive on those parts! Lastly, I added in some iridescent sequins to tie in the Pumpkin Pie accents on the butterfly.
Here's a list of my supplies......
