Today, I am playing and using supplies that

have been in my stash for years. I thought to

try a bit a watercolor with pearlescent paint in the

lower left hand corner with 2 shades of green.

Needing more variation in color I used a couple of

green watercolor pens. I have not watercolored

since I was a kid.

I then added droplets of pink pearlescent and

allowed to soak into the paper. I then used a water

color pen in fuchsia to accent the flower blooms.

Let dry.

I then cut the paper to 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" as


I then used the 2 silhouette butterflies from

the Firefly stamp & cut set and randomly stamped

them across the page, corner to corner in

Memento - Angel Pink. Sponge some of the Angel

Pink around the 2 white areas.

Then sponge some Memento - Pear Tart

around the edges with the greenery as shown.

I then sponged a bit of the pearlescent pink

around the pink sponged area to give is a bit of


Using both the Firefly Butterfly die and the

Crafter's Companion Butterfly Die, I cut one of each

of DCWV Pink Pearlescent paper as shown.

On the Pink Lace Vellum I traced around the

wings of the butterfly dies and fussy cut. Apply

a small amount of Dimensional glue to the

backside of the butterfly body and adhere to the

vellum. Let Dry. Fold the wings up.

Cut the leftover Mixed Media paper to 4-3/4"x6-3/4"

and Cut the DCWV Pearlescent Pink to 5"x7".

Watercolor the edges of the Mixed Media with

Pearlescent Pink about 3/4" in as shown and let dry.

While drying, Use the Nesting Vintage Torn

Rectangle die to trim the edges of the image piece.

it will take 4 tries, be careful not to roll tooo far in

the Big Shot. Repeat 4 x in order to cut all 4 sides.

Using Tear-ific Tape adhere the Mixed Media

Pearlescent piece centered on the DCWV Pink

Pearlescent 5"x7" piece.

Using 3M Foam Tape adhere the Vintage Torn

Edge centered on the Mixed Media/Pearlescent


Using the sentiment from the Dahlia set I

stamped on the scraps of mixed media paper with

Memento Lilac Posies and cut out with the

scalloped pierced rectangle.

Using 3M Foam tape adhere the sentiment

on the lower left-hand corner about 5/8" from the

bottom and left side as shown.

Then position the 2 Vellum butterflies on the

front as desired. Then adhere with a touch of

dimensional glue to just the body part. Let dry.

It has a nice shimmer, but needed a touch of

glitz! So, adhered a few random iridescent sequins

to the front.

Applied Nuvo Glitter Drops-Morning Dew to the

bodies of the butterflies. Let Dry.

Using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape adhere the card front

to a 5"x7" white card base.

Just enough shimmer and shine like the rarest of women... I will use this card to send a donation to the Turner Syndrome Foundation for the sale of my TSF Key stamp set #3220J . Stop by their Awareness Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by today and coming along on my play day!
