Post 271: Mixed Media Card (Butterflies)

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Card I made. This was for my DT post for Bob n Betty. You can check out all the details and photo tutorial here. I am slowly sharing projects on my blog as and when I get the time.

I love butterflies so this was fun to make. I worked with faux leather for the first time and was happy that it could be easily die cut.

Synopsis of the Process: This is a 6 by 6 top folding card. Basically I created layers and textures with pattern paper, die cuts, lace and gauze. Stamping was done in the background and color was added using zig markers. I created simple paper flowers to embellish the project by die cutting pattern paper. 

List of Supplies:
Bob n Betty's Faux Leather
Bob n Betty Feel like a butterfly and No One But You Paper Pack
Prima's Heavy White Gesso
Baby Pink Cardstock 300 gsm
Kaisercraft stamp- Botanicals
Ranger's Archival Jet Black Ink
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Pearl Lace
Gina Marie Designs Butterfly XL die
Cheery Lynn Designs- Tea Rose Medium Die
Half Pearls

Here is a photo of the card:

Here are some close-up photos:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Butterfly Challenge #85 - stamped silhouette butterflies in the background on the pattern paper and added a wee bit of black watercolor drips (zig markers) which look indigo on top of the pink when watered down. 

Thanks for your time :)
Love reading your sweet comments.
Stay Blessed.
