Pretty Pink Posh’s Watercolor Hop fit perfect for my 30 Day Coloring Challenge and it was such an honor to be invited. I was hoping to wow you with a video (fingers crossed) and two cards.
It was so fun to create this jumbo butterfly card using some embossing powder and these watercolors. Did you happen to catch my shaped butterfly card using the same stamp? Click here to see it. Here’s a little snap shot of my shaped butterfly card.
Yes I love this butterfly lol.
The videos are divided up in 2 parts again. PART 1. is the background. PART 2. is the butterfly.
I wanted to make a similar card with black ink instead of clear embossing power. The color moves differently on the paper w/ the black ink versus the embossed image. The embossing keeps the water colors more contained. If I want a quick bold sentiment I always reach for Paper Smooches, Bold Buzz Words.
Bold or more pastel-ish? I love what the large “Hello” does for my cards and it suits any occasion.
Off topic I just have to say WOW so many of you are blazing on Instagram and I am enjoying all of the uploads on my blog. You guys are inspiring me and thank YOU! Go here to read more about the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and if you want to share what your creating go to Day 1 and scroll to the bottom of the post. You will find a blue Inlinkz tab to link up your coloring.
Die cutting several layers is so worth the effort in my book and it enhances the card with more of a focal interest? What do you think? That’s it for today. See you tomorrow and thanks for your visit. Hugs, Kathy
