My youngest DD was playing with our dog the other day and dressed her up in butterfly wings... her name is Peanut and she is nicknamed "Nutter" - well she became NUTTERFLY!! After I got done with this card it reminded me of the pictures we took of her... and lo and behold... she resembles the card! Oh yeah... don't feel sorry for our dog.... she LOVES playing dress up! She gets all excited when we dress her up and drags out all her toys to play. It took major bribery to keep her still for a picture!
The stamp set is a current level 1 hostess set called "Reason to Smile". I inked the butterfly with Ballet Blue, Night of Navy and Elegant Eggplant - then stamped the image on white cardstock. It was cut out, then inked with navy along the edges. I then painted it with multiple coats of interference violet Pearl Ex to give it a shimmery look. I embossed a chipboard photo anchor with gold EP and added gold cord for the antenae.
The flourish is from Doodle This and is also painted with interference violet Pearl Ex. I also added some metallic gold doodles to match the butterfly. The white layer is matted on an elegant eggplant card base.
Thanks for looking!
