Post 329: Mixed Media Butterfly Card

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Butterfly Card today :)

Synopsis of the Process:

For this Butterfly card I created texture using the checks design stencil and Prima's modeling paste. Then sprinkled on pigment powders and sprayed them with water to dissolve the pigment, create movement and blend the colors. Then stamped the butterfly but since it was stamping on texture, it didn't stamp perfectly, so I created a loose-watercolored look by using a black zig marker and an aqua brush. Stamped in the background for added interest. Used Tim Holtz stickers for the quotes "Today is full of possibilities", "life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful" and "look on the bright side". Then embellished the butterfly with a gem and in the end created some black and white splatter. 

List of Supplies:

Visible Image Stamp- Live Life Now
Prima Finnabair Vintage Vanity Advert #3 stamp
Prima's Modelling Paste
Tim Holtz Idealogy Stickers
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Niro Craft Checks Stencil
Niro Craft Pigment Powders
White and Black Cardstock
Canson Watercolor Paper
Green Gem
Black Zig Marker
Aqua Brush

Here is a photo of the card:
