Well, I was informed that my entry into the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge was not acceptable as it had to be a bug, butterfly, dragonfly or bird. So I am going to try entering one I think will be acceptable for the challenge.
First I made a background for the butterfly by taking white card stock and my Gina K. Designs Kraft ink pad and swiping and squiggling and anything else I could think of to create a textured look. You can see a portion of it in the photo.
While that dried I then die cut the butterfly out and also the white and black panels which would be put onto a base card of kraft card stock.
After the inked card stock was dry I then pasted the butterfly onto that and then fussy cut around it My next step was to take a black fine point alcohol ink pen and add some dots in between each cut out area on the butterfly. I then put this aside until I got my panels together.
Before I added the butterfly to the layered panels, I took some paper tape from Me & My Big Ideas and put that down the middle. With a white gel pen I colored in a few elements on that tape. Now I was ready to put the butterfly over the top and I popped it with foam tape
All layers were together and I thought it still needed something extra to give it more pizzazz, so I die cut some corner elements from black card stock and added them to the card. I finished it by adding the sentiment which is from the Gina K. Designs Stippled Nature set.
