Last But Not Least

I'm so excited to start on my March Bloom Box cards but I still need to share the last of the 4 cards from our February Bloom Box.  Yeah, I"m a bit late but, as they (who is they??) say, better late than never.

I love the simplicity of this card yet to me it is still very elegant!  And the Bold Wings stamp set butterfly is just so gorgeous!  We started with a base of Lavender Fusion card stock.  I stamped the butterfly and sentiment with Black Licorice ink on the Whip Cream layer.  I used our Color Splash pencils to color the butterfly by making a puddle of color on an acrylic block with a Blending Brush then coloring.  Using the left over puddles I splattered the card stock like I do with our Silks.  In fact, I used a bit of Silver Silk, too!

I ran a line of Journey Glaze around the outside edge of the butterfly then sprinkled with Sparkle Cuts. I actually prefer Sparkle Cuts (like a glitter but larger chunks, like itty bitty sparkly circles of fun) over Sparkle Dust (a fine glitter)  After it dried I adhered this layer to the card base and added some Silver (Special Celebrations) Sequins.

Next week I'll share pictures from a special meeting I'll be attending tomorrow in Scottsdale, AZ. We are to bring Easter Cards to display.  I have 2 cards made and will be sharing those next week, too.
