The third project from my Bugs, Beasts & Butterflies class is this fabulous Balmy Blue butterflies card.
It is a monochrome-type card as it only uses Balmy Blue and Very Vanilla.
Firstly, a strip was masked across the card and an ombre of Balmy Blue ink was added using a Sponge Brayer.
Next, an image from the Artisan Textures Stamp Set creates the speckled look across the masked piece.
Once the masking had been removed, it was time to piece everything together.
Strips of Lace Trim Ribbon are placed behind the circle, before the large butterfly is added on the top. The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Butterfly Duet Punch.
You can’t see it in the picture, but the large butterfly has been coated in Wink of Stella to make it sparkly when it catches the light.
Finally, a sentiment from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and the two smaller butterflies are added to create this trio of Balmy Blue Butterflies. I think this would look great in purple or orange too.
Sadly, this class was my final face-to-face evening class for a while due the current pandemic.
Don’t forget that during this pandemic, small businesses need your support in order to still be there when it is all over. If you are able to help, a small order, or a class booking makes all the difference and is very much appreciated.
