I used a lilac card front and layered on a floral embossed layer (CB) in a blue purple colour and added a strip of deep pink which I stamped with a butterfly image in a similar colour to give it dimension without too much contrast. I coloured the butterfly image (CLKER) with watercolour and added some shimmer using acrylic paint. Layered it onto an embossed silver foil scallop circle (yogurt seal), then onto a darker purple scallop and finally onto a medium toned scallop circle which were all cut with Nestibilities. I added both this element and the colour printed greeting to the card front using 3D foam tape. I did embellish the greeting with watercolour when I was painting the butterfly to ensure it would coordinate perfectly!!
Nestibilities are a great way to get perfectly sized elements for layering!!
these tags. I added a central decorative brad to hold the flower together and then dug into my bucket of "extras" to see if I could find a leaf - sure enough I found one!! I found the greeting in my bucket of extra greetings. I added a bit of watercolour and glued it to the back of the flower and did the same to the leaf. Applied double sided tape to the back of all the elements and adhered it to the front of my tiny card!! My desk is a bit cleaner and I have a tiny card to add to my card stash!!
