Thinking of You Vellum Butterfly Card

vellum butterfly and watercolor thinking of you

OK, another butterfly. Whipped this up quickly to get it into the mail to Cousin Pati.

It is all Rick Adkins’ fault – he posted two butterfly cards this week, this one – A Grungy Butterfly Thank You Card , and this one – Springtime for Butterflies Card .

I watercolored a background using Sakura Koi watercolors, and then die cut that with a stitched rectangle die. I used Ranger Multi Medium Matte liquid glue (sparingly) under the (butterfly) vellum, and it worked well. I will have to remember to ask Cousin Pati if the butterfly was still attached when she receives it!

Basic Black, Lovely Lilac vellum (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, watercolors – Sakura Koi, dies – Hero Arts (butterfly), Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (rectangle turned flag), embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, twine – We R Memory Keepers.
