Berry Bright Butterfly ~ CCMC563, GDP191, SIP200, TSOT410

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......
Stamps: Beautiful Day, Needle and Thread
Ink: Berry Burst, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Craft White
Paper: Brights DSP, Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Vellum, Watercolor
Accessories: Perlized Doilies, iridescent sequins, white thread

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
