Butterfly Flutters on Two Cards



Hello!  I have been playing with a Butterfly stamp from the Take Flight set by Gina K Designs to create 2 different cards.  For the one above,  I stamped the butterfly image twice with Versafine Onyx Black ink using a mask on white cardstock. The GKD sentiment (Northwoods set) was stamped with the same ink but I heat embossed it with Clear EP.  Adhered the image to a Black Mat and a White card base.

For the second card, I created a background using a Lace Layering Stencil by Tim Holtz.  I used 7 inks in rainbow colors with the stencil on white cardstock.  I trimmed the panel and added to a panel of black cardstock and attached to a card base of GKD Wild Dandelion CS.  I stamped the same  butterfly used on the card above on to the Wild Dandelion CS with Black ink and heat embossed with Clear EP and then fuss cut .  I attached the Butterfly to the rainbow panel and stamped a sentiment from the Take Flight set by GKD.

Those Gina K. butterflies are so lifelike! They look like they could flutter off your cards! I love the idea of a black and white card - it's so simple and elegant, and wonderfully CAS. Your second card with its stenciled background is really pretty, and the butterfly all dressed in yellow is lovely. Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

These are such pretty designs, Theresa! I love the contrast between your striking black and white design (great masking!) and your rainbow-colored design (great stenciling!) with the bright yellow butterfly! That's a pretty and versatile butterfly stamp! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #5!! Hugs, Darnell

What the heck! I just came in for another look and noticed I hadn't even left you a note! I have to tell you that I LOVE the colorful butterfly card-- it's the kind of card that makes me want to drop everything and play with inks! So inspirational. I also love the b&w card. Two wonderful creations. Thanks for sharing at SOS, and we hope to see you more often. Our current challenge is for kid's cards... :)
