Wednesday’s Card: Double Fold Watercolor Butterfly

Double Fold Butterfly

Double Fold Butterfly

Hi All!

I created this card for my guest designer spot at LilyPad Cards. Unfortunately, they closed down their site, so I’m reposting it here.

I used an Aqua Painter to watercolor the Stampin’ Up! inks onto my embossed butterfly. Enjoy the video!

    Love that fold, you make it look so easy. Checked out the Pond, enjoyed your interview and I must agree Broken China is a must have blue.

    G’day Darlene – congrats on the guest spot for Lily Pad, great interview and true to form wonderful cards from your good self. Inspired me to have a go at the butterfly one except don’t have that particular stamp so will have to rummage around to see what else I could put there. Have a great week….

    I saw your post on Lily Pad Cards and I thought “Oh I know her”! (Which of course I don’t but, I am a follower of your blog so just go with me on this one.) All three cards were lovely. You are an inspiration to us all.
