It feels like forever since I've done any blogging! So nice to be back!
I had an absolutely fabulous trip to see my sister and little niece last week! I didn't want to leave...cuddling with my niece was just too sweet :) But I missed my husband...and while I had a nice week, he had a crappy week...so I needed to come home to support him. But I look forward to July when I get to see my sweet niece again at my sisters wedding!!
We have a super adorable release for you today at Sami Stamps called Happy Hearts. It's is so super sweet!! I've used the image Heart Butterfly:
To start the card, I created a bright watercolor background. I was actually hoping it would soften a bit as it dried since I thought it was a little too bright while making it, but now I kind of like the vibrant colors.
While that dried, I printed off and colored in the butterfly with the same blue I used on the background, but I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush as my paintbrush so that the whole thing shimmers! It's really quite gorgeous! Then I white heat embossed some swirls in the background and added black perlen pen to all the dot details of the swirls.
I framed my sentiment with some black cardstock and mounted it all onto my card base! I really do love how this turned out! Even if my brain wasn't quite into card making mode...it's always nice when something comes together perfectly.
We also have our challenge running for a few more days! We're asking you to paper piece something! Just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image, and join in!!
