Flutter By Wednesday


Wednesdays are Flutter By Wednesdays on Danni's blog: Danni's Dreams. I have been on Danni's team for about 2 months now and really enjoy making cards for the weekly challenges. Each week we make a card with a butterfly or fairy and then whatever theme is chosen. This week we are to create a scene and cannot use any patterned paper. If you'd like to play along, just post a link to your card on Mr Linky on Danni's blog. We'd love to have you play along with us!

I stamped an image from the SU! set Summer By the Sea in Smokey Shadow ink onto watercolor paper. I used SU! markers and Watercolor pencils and an aquabrush to color the image and scene. I cut out the image and the scalloped mat with my oval Nestabilities. For the background, I stamped the lighthouse and buildings from the GinaK set Guiding Light in Smokey Shadow. I decided not to color them in but colored in the sky and grass. Of course I added a butterfly that I punched from the purple cardstock and vellum cardstock with a MS punch. I used a glue dot to attach the vellum butterfly to the purple one, then added pearls.


Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: Stamps - SU! Summer by the Sea, GinaK Guiding Light; Ink - Smokey Shadow; Paper - Watercolor paper, PTI Plum Pudding, PTI Vellum; Misc - Watercolor pencils, aquabrush, SU! markers, MS punch, Nestabilities, pearls
