TEAL BUTTERFLY

This past weekend, I managed to create a couple of cards that will fit into several challenges.  


I wanted to play around with my alcohol inks and made some backgrounds using yupo paper and also a piece of thick vellum.  For my card, I used the vellum piece on the back side for a softer look.  I adhered the vellum to cardstock with some wide scor-tape and then die cut it with a rectangle die.  Cut the butterflies from PTI's Life is Beautiful in white and also another piece of the vellum.  Put it all together with a few Nuvo drops on the body of the butterfly.

I am entering this in the PTI challenge (use only dies), HLS Mixed Media challenge (butterfly) and Addicted to CAS (teal)


Made a second card with the vellum piece.


Just used it for the background and embossed the butterfly and added some white Nuvo drops and the little sentiment.  I really like the soft look of the alcohol ink on the vellum - maybe even better than on glossy or yupo paper.

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Betty, both of these cards are gorgeous! I don’t own alcohol inks but I’ve been seeing on other blogs about yupo paper. It’s hard to keep up with all this stuff so I don’t even try.
