YOU MAKE ME HAPPY - FLUTTERS & BLOOMS


Today's card is similar to yesterday's card but different too. I used the same butterfly die from the Wings of Joy Dies but this time I did some ink smooshing. First I grabbed some watercolor paper and all the ink colors used in the Flutter's & Blooms Patterned Paper - Pink Champagne, Shea Butter, Seafoam, Spruce, Sangria and Royal Treatment. Here's a peek at the paper. 


I pressed the ink pad onto a large stamping block, spritzed it with a little water and then smooshed the paper into the ink in a few spots. I used my heat tool to dry the paper and then moved on to the next ink color repeating the process until the paper was covered. When done I cut out a butterfly.

For the background I used the Flower Burst Cover Plate - this may be my favorite item in the release - but instead of using it as a die I embossed with it. To do this you need an embossing mat. You make your 'sandwich' in this way - cutting plate, die (facing up), card stock, embossing mat, cutting plate. This is what works for me and my machine - sometimes I need to add a piece of copy paper depending on the die. 
I love the texture and detail it adds.


The sentiment was kept really simple so as not to compete with the butterfly and the background.
