Rubbernecker Thursday- Gentle as a Butterfly

Rubbernecker Thursday- Gentle as a Butterfly

Welcome to another Rubbernecker Thursday! I have a lovely card to share with you today. I have been playing with all kinds of different elements lately, and having so much fun! I used my FSJ splash sprays like watercolors to create this soft background, and I really love how it turned out! I was also playing around with Journey Modeling Paste and my favorite stencil, Stained Glass, also from FSJ. I applied the modeling paste to a piece of clear card stock, then flipped it over and glued it clear card stock side up. This prevents any of the modeling paste from chipping off. I chose Butterfly 7 #947 for my focal image, this is a watercolor stamp set. It is a two part set, an outline stamp and a solid “filler” stamp that you can use to add color to the wings of the butterfly, with inks or watercolors . I used Distress Oxide inks that I blended together on the stamp with a sponge dauber.  I spritzed the dry inks with water to get a slightly splotchy watercolor look. Then I added a bit of shimmer to the wings with a glitter brush. I die cut my butterfly using the matching die set for this stamp, Butterfly 7 die set #947D. The die was so easy to line up, and cut so crisply, love these dies! The sentiment I chose for this card is Gentle as a Butterfly #627-02. I stamped it onto an oval I cut using Nested Oval Small Stitch Die Set #5014D.
