{ Beate's Butterfly }


So many possibilities with this beautiful butterfly. The Hostess, Reason to Smile, set was a part of the Blog Candy package I won from Beate. It was difficult to settle on just one of the possibilities, but the elements of this card just fell into place.

I stamped the image using Taken With Teal Craft ink then "dusted" it with a white Color Box Cat Eye that I've had since I first started stamping. This lightened the image and blended well with the Cool Caribbean paper. After it dried I randomly dotted the flowers as well as the butterfly body with Crystal Effects. Once this dried I used my Stardust Glitter pen to add the "sparkle which I purchased from Ellen Hutson, LLC. The papers are a combination of Overton House Designs - Mint Expresso Stripes, DCWV Old World Stack, and the SU Au Chocolat paper I received from Beate. The lovely reversible ribbon was also from Beate. The hardware is SU Hodge Podge and the sentiment is from the PaperTrey Word Stamps set. The top of the butterfly is raised while the base is attached flush to the paper giving it the appearance of momentarily lighting on the card before it flutters on.

Once again I would like to thank Beate for the blog goodies. It couldn't have been more perfect. I also found out while corresponding with her that we live only an hour or so apart. Now I'm looking forward to attending her stamping classes on what I hope will be a regular basis.
