Hello, butterfly!

Hello everyone, hope your week is going well!  Mine mostly is, but I’m sitting here wondering — how did it get to be Wednesday already?  Yikes.  Just a quick share today, as I’m still working on cards for CHA

This card is for a nature loving friend who is battling cancer — wanted to let him know that Jason and I were thinking about him and send him a hug.  I tried to make the butterfly look like a Monarch, I just know that he loves them.


I was going for a sunflower sort of look to the card base, with the yellow scalloped edges and the brown center.  I think the woodgrain helps make it a little “manly”.


Okay, back to work I go…

Supplies: All stamps, notecards, and gems by Hero Arts.  Scallop + circle dies by Nestabilities.  Prismacolor pencils. I used pop dots to pop up the wings on the second butterfly.

    Wow – another great card.  Love the double layer butterfly – it really gives depth to the card.  But didn’t you blow the “manliness” of the woodgrain by putting all that bling on- LOL!!

  19. Hi Lisa :) Besides me loving this card I think I discovered a new technique with the help of your Itaglioed Tag Book video.

    You basically do the same thing but on top of inking your stamp with versamark, you put whatever colored ink you would wanna use. So what happens is you get an etched look with color. Err. it’s kinda hard to describe so take a look at this picture of a heart I made.


  20. I don’t own any Nestabilities yet, but you make them look GOOD, Lisa! That totally looks like a Monarch butterfly. What a great card for your friend.  I wish him well.
