3 cards using the SSS card kit spring butterflies byMonti thepolkadotpinecone


My first card I used the stencil included in the kit to add butterflies to my white base piece. I used the New Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks Squeezed lemonade and Mermaid Lagoon that were also included in the kit. Once I applied one color I shifted my stencil a bit to give a kind of shadowy effect and made some of the butterflies green by combining the blue and the yellow inks. I stamped the butterfly trail and the greeting from the stamp set in black ink. I stamped a solid butterfly from the stamp set and then fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card. I mounted the white base onto a yellow 5.5 by 4.25 top fold card base. The card was finished off with some clear Nuvo drops, I applied the drops on top of the little dots of the stamp so they took on the color of the ink.




The second card I stamped with white embossing powder and then colored the images with my water brush and Tim Holtz distress oxide inks. I stamped the butterfly twice and cut out the second one and applied it over the top of the first with some dimensional tape. I stamped a couple solide butterflies with some versamark ink just for light inages in the background. I stamped a greeting from the set in black and then added the whole white panel to a piece of the patterned paper included in the kit and affixed the whole thing to a top folding 5.5 by 4.25 card base. I finished the card off by adding some clear Nuvo drops to the buds on the leaves for some shine.




This last card I started out applying some texture paste to the butterfly stencil and then cut a strip and added on top of the two layered doilies. I used another piece of the patterned paper from the kit to cut a label to add my sentiment on to with purple ink. I also added a turquoise felt flower to the butterfly strip and then added more clear Nuvo crystal drops. The whole piece is added on to a piece of purple striped patterned paper from the kit and added to my card base, which again is a top folding 5.5 by 4.25.
