Butterfly Beauty Watercolour Card

Time for me to share a handmade card creation from a design challenge!  I love these challenges because it gives me a great way to create and have fun doing it.  I also love to see what others come up with too!

This challenge came from the Global Design Project and includes a color combination of Just Jade, Bumble Bee and Magenta Madness.  I also used Stampin’ Up’s new annual catty for some further inspiration.

When I first saw the colour challenge, I knew right away that I had to use the large butterflies from the Butterfly Beauty dies to show off the different colours.

I die cut both the front layer and back layer of the butterflies using watercolour paper.  I used the 3 re-inkers (Just Jade, Bumble Bee and Magenta Madness) and water coloured them onto both layers of paper.  I made sure to vary the intensity of the colours, to show off the beauty of the detailed cuts.

The Playful Alphabet dies were used to cut out the THANKS, similar to a picture in the annual catty.  I just love how the letters pop out, using the new adhesive foam sheets!  The sentiment was taken from the matching Beauty Abounds stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed this creative challenge card post.  To see more of my designs, please check out the Ideas section.  If you’d like more information, please check out my About page or e-mail me.  I would love to hear from you with any feedback.
