The Butterfly

Hi Everyone,
Have you played with the Color Burst that is out on the market?? Well I have a few times and last nite I played with a yellow and a blue color.

.But this time I used the Color Burst as ink.

I spritzed a mist of water on a butterfly stamp and tapped a blue and a yellow bit of the powders on the rubber stamp. Then I turned that stamp over and stamped it on white card stock.

Well I loved what I got.

I decided to fussy cut that butterfly out.
Next I decided to stamp this same butterfly image on a blank white card.
After doing that, I had a lot of white space staring at me, so I pulled out a new stencil and covered up that white space with a brick design.

My butterfly that I had fussy cut out, I attached it over the butterfly
 that I stamped directly on the card front.

I had a die cut, a lattice flourish, just sitting on my table and I slid it behind/underneath the butterfly

Then, I saw a  die cut piece from  K&Co, so I added that.(Its positioned above the butterfly)It was already colored  and its colors complimented the colors I was using on the card so I was OK with this addition.

   Lastly I took a dictionary page and copied it onto card stock and added the butterfly definition.

OK Let me share my card with you.

Well I am really loving that butterfly and how it came out. Hope this inspires you to use Color Burst.

    That is a lovely card you created and I love the way the butterfly turned out too. I wish I had more time to play, but this is summer and that means other projects take top spot.
