...Flutter By Wednesday #87

This is my submission for today's Flutter By Wednesday challenge. I used the butterfly image from C.C. Designs' set "Bugga-Boos".. She was stamped in black and watercolored using an Aquapainter and Ink Pads [Watercoloring Tutorial Tomorrow!!!]. The sentiment was from Verve's set "Thankful Hearts", and was stamped in black before being punched out with the Large Oval Punch. A scrap piece of amethyst cardstock was punched out using the Scallop Oval punch, then used as the mat on the sentiment panel. The focal panel was cut out with a Spellbinders' Nestabilities Die with the wings "outside the box". My dear friend, Pam, has a wonderful tutorial HERE. The bottom of the card base was punched with the Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch. The edges of the Tea Party Designer Series Paper were pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, and a piece of Celery Ribbon was added to complete the card.
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a watercoloring tutorial!
