Watercolouring with Butterfly Gala

Hey folks! I am completely in LOVE with today’s card. I’ve had this one sat on my desk for weeks, but I’ve been waiting for the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating punch to come back into stock before sharing it with you.

There are a couple of steps to this card, but it’s still simple to create… it just takes a bit of time.

I had a bunch of scraps of watercolour paper out on my desk, and I used Stampin’ Up! classic inks to watercolour them. I was really messy with this, because the butterflies are little and I still wanted you to see that they are watercoloured. There are 4 colours here; Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green.

This is why this card takes a little bit of time, because once those scraps have been watercoloured they need to be left a little while to dry. I but them to one side and carried on making a few more cards before then using the Butterfly Duet punch to punch out those cute butterflies.

You guys know that I’m not a fan of flat cards, I love a bit of dimension, and so some of the butterflies are adhered directly to the card base, and some are popped up on Mini Dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from Butterfly Gala, and it’s heat embossed in White onto a scrap of Basic Black card stock.

For all this card could have been called finished at this point, I felt it just needed a little something, so I through a bunch of Rhinestones on there, because, well, you can’t go wrong with a bit of sparkle can you?!
