It's Sunday and time for a new Paper Players challenge. Have you been enjoying the "butterfly revolution" around blog-land lately? I have and so I'm excited that our hostess, Sandy, has a butterfly theme for us this week.
I received the Paper Source Mother's Day circular in the mail earlier in the week and on page 9 there is a black and white card with a green circle element. It really caught my eye so I've CASE'd it for my card this week. (See the picture below my card.) If you saw my post yesterday, I used a Stampin' Around wheel stamp to make the background on yesterday's card. I decided to use another wheel to make the background on today's card. Such fun!
To make the background, I wheeled the stamp diagonally using Memento tuxedo black. One of the small butterflies from the set is stamped in the open boxes using various Hero Shadow inks and my mini-Misti stamping tool. I wanted to stamp the image a few times to get a darker shade and the Misti is the perfect tool for this. Once the ink was dry, I used a white gel pen to add some dots to the small butterflies.
The larger butterfly is stamped in SU Daffodil Delight and cut out with the corresponding RC die, then adhered with Dimensionals. I rounded two opposite corners and mounted on a card base of Daffodil Delight card stock. A few black pearls for embellishments, keeping with the dots theme in the wheel stamp and on the small butterflies, and this simple card is done.
You'll see some beautiful butterfly cards when you visit the rest of the DT's blogs:
