Jill here, and this week I am going crazy with colour...
...creating an explosion of butterflies and camouflaging my message.
I was looking at my Instagram feed the other day and realised I was in dire need of some colour, so that's what inspired today's card.
I used Brusho's to create my background (if you haven't heard of them already - Google/You Tube them - amaaaazing product!), but of course you could use anything; inks, Zig Clean Colour Pens, Watercolour, basically whatever your preferred medium is. I simply sprinkled them on my background, spritzed with water & POW, an explosion of colour. I then added a whole load of flicks and splashes using Kuretake Starry Colours & Zig Pens mixed with water. I coloured a separate piece of card in the same way at the same time and used this piece to cut a load of Waffle Flower Teeny Wings butterflies from. I also cut a load of the same Teeny Wings from plain white card too.
I then took Lawn Fawn's Scripty Wishes, and die-cut from the front of my card. I added a layer of foam to the back, and in-laid the whole thing back in. I wanted my die to remain 'camouflaged' into the background, but I didn't want to lose it completely, so I added a layer of vellum, again cut from the same die, and adhered over the top using Stick-It to give it a different finish to the rest of the card.
I then added my scattering of Teeny Wing butterflies, fluttering out from my die and colour explosion, and adhered them in place.
I white heat embossed 'Happy' from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby onto black card, cut into a little flag and added to my card front to finish off my sentiment.
I then matted my panel onto black card, mounted the whole thing to a card base, and there you have it.
I really hope you like it, as always, everything I used is linked below.
See you next week.
