I'm so excited to share my card with you today! I bought the Bigz Butterfly by Tim Holtz with my Santa monies and haven't used it until now! It nearly killed me! Just imagine! This beauty was sitting in my craft drawer boxed and unused! Until I got my crafty hands on it and made this,...
... I covered the die cut and embossed butterfly in my white Gesso, then in the crackle paint in Picket Fence by Tim Holtz & let it dry fully. I added my Distress inks (Victorian Velvet & Pumice Stone) to top. The base card was sponged, distressed, layered with the gorgeous paper by Lilly of the Valley (sponged & distressed too), the front panel distressed as well, I used the gorgeous Damask stencil received from my dear friend Loll and my Liquitex light Modeling paste with some iridescent glitter to top. I added a piece of the gorgeous lace by Marianne Designs, a piece of colorized ribbon and a die cut sentiment (Docrafts Large Sentiment set). I decorated my Butterfly with Stickles too! I wanted this card to have the shabby look but also tried to keep it a bit grungy. You know I like to mix grunge and glitz... I call it Glam Grunge... there is something about using natural and glitzy or grungy and glitzy together... creating a contrast and texture. What do you think?
Between you and I... the butterfly wings are not the same so pay attention when decorating your cut out panel... make sure you decorate the right side, yeah! :) LOL!
I made another card using the same butterfly... well, I have two more to show you, but I'll leave it for another day...
