Today I want to share with you a simple card created with my new Butterfly Thinlits Dies and a couple watercolor techniques!
The butterfly was cut from watercolor paper I had randomly colored with a reinker watercolor technique (heavily mist your watercolor paper and using an aquapainter drop classic ink refill onto the wet surface and watch it spread out) and the background was done with a stampin' write marker watercolor technique (markers applied directly to an acrylic stamping block and misted before 'stamping'). A little Crystal Effects to add shine to my butterfly and some Basic Rhinestones to add a bit of bling and my card is done. I keep thinking of stamping a greeting below, but I don't know when I will use this card so I'm going to keep it simple.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Butterfly Thinlits Dies from the Occasions Catalog and was so disappointed when they went on backorder. When they came available again in April, my order went in faster than anyone else's, but time to play was a little slower coming than my product. While I am hoping, and crossing my fingers, that these dies will be picked up in the 2015-2016 Idea Book & Catalog in June, I am reminding my customers to order now if you want to ensure their availability.
