Butterfly Basics Week – Watercolour Background

I do hope that you have enjoyed this week of Butterfly Basics cards. I have another themed week planned for next week too – I’m away this weekend and On Stage, the 6 monthly Stampin’ Up! corporate event, and am attending a team training day on Sunday. I managed to volunteer myself into doing an inspiration station – a whole table of cards with one theme! So, next week I will share a whole heap of cards featuring one technique, but I’m going to leave you to guess which one!

While I’m talking about On Stage, don’t forget to check out my Facebook page and Instagram this weekend, as I am sure to share some photos of my adventures (but not new products, I’m not allowed to show you anything like that yet!)

Stampin' Up! UK Butterfly Basics Watercolour Background Thinking of you card

This final card in my series of card featuring Butterfly Basics is probably my favourite. Purple is my favourite colour, and so I’ve selected 3 shades here to create this background; Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. It is super easy to create this watercolour background, the trick it to let each colour and layer dry before adding the next, and creating ‘hard edges’ but speeding up the drying process with you Heat Tool.

The butterfly is stamped in Wisteria Wonder onto more Watercolour Paper before being die cut with the coordinating die from the Butterfly thinlits dies, and it adhered to the card with a few glue dots that are also holding down the loops of Metallic thread in Gold.

I wanted a neutral background / card base for this one, and so selected Tip Top Taupe, a colour I have to admit I haven’t used all that much recently, but am starting to really enjoy – probably should add a pack of card stock to my next order!
