Get Well Butterfly


The butterfly diecut was laid on the white panel and daubed with paints, moved, then daubed with paint, covering the butterfly as well.  The butterfly was spritzed to smooth out the colour.  Great fall colour.

Die: Spellbinders (used as a stencil)

Sentiment: unknown

Also: Acrylic paint, Shimmer Spritz Frost, black cord, black pen, gems

I can see where the butterfly was on the white card stock before you moved it! What a fun technique! Kind of like a white shadow.

Your card is so pretty. I love the dimension on the butterfly. It looks as if it's about to fly right off the card. Thank you for sharing this with us at Cut it Up!
