{Find Your Heart-Be Yourself}

followyourheart2




  Hello! I know this is very last minute but I wanted to play along with this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe! Look at these beautiful colors:


  This card was more like working on canvas then working with paper. I used one of my ALL time favorite SU sets "Butterfly of Happiness". I used two shades of pigment ink to stamp my butterflies. Now, to achieve the "velvet" appearance I stamped my butterflies on Vellum Bristol art paper. Next I spritzed the stamped butterflies with water. I used a paper towel to soak up the excess water and left it to dry over night. It turned out so pretty and I know I will be trying this technique again. The create sentiment is from the Hero Arts set " Treasure The Moment". I heat embossed the sentiment using black powder.   I used more of my vanilla burlap and to finish off my card I added a PTI linen button tied with twine. Today I am also playing along with the current Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. Here is the picture: 


  The water color effect of the butterflies was what I tried to achieve with my card. I hope you like my card and don't forget to check out my BIG blog giveaway HERE.  Thank you for visiting today and have a great week!
