Wednesday’s Card: Clean & Simple Butterflies

Hi All!

I’ve been doing some fairly sophisticated designs recently, so I decided to do something very simple this week. Plus, I wanted to use the Papillon Potpourri set and matching punch again. So lovely.

The butterflies are watercolored with an Aqua Painter, and I used a scoreboard for the lines in the white panels.

    Hello Darlene: This stamp set and the matching punch are just dreamy. I love the way you colored the butterflies with water colors, this is my favorite technique for my cards. Thank you so much for yet another wonderful, creative, inspiring and beautiful card.

    Love this card. The embossing on the white cardstock is very effective. WOW! Gorgeous. BTW, I thought all cards were supposed to have dog and/or cat hair on them. Isn’t that deemed and embellishment?

    Love the elegant simplicity of this card, it’s definitely my style of card. That is a stunning butterfly stamp and to have matching punch is such a bonus.
