So Suzy Butterflies
this gorgeous butterfly is from the new So Suzy Stamps release. It reminds me about a Brimstone butterfly.
I wanted to create a delicate card in green and yellow, but my first attempt failed. But I am not going to throw out a nice piece of watercolor card stock.....I had first heat embossed the butterflies and then added the water color. I was not happy with the result, so I tried to wash it off, which only partially worked. I spare you the uglyness.....
My stamp supplies:
I started to color in the butterflies with more vivid colors
I first used yellow and while it was still wet I added a rim of teal
It blends with the yellow all on its own - you have to do nothing but watch.
Once I filled in all the butterflies I added tiny black dots to the antennae. I trimmed the card stock, heat embossed the sentiment on a dark blue scrap piece and added it with another neon yellow scrap and foam tape.
Two enamel dots to finish it off. You see, you can rescue anything! No need to clog up your recycling bin.
