So glad to be back with you! I had a great vacation.
This week is pretty much all watercolor. I used a stamp I picked up at the Scrapbook Convention here in Dallas a few months ago. I picked a part of the background to highlight (the butterfly), which you could do with a lot of background stamps out there.
I find that watercolor works best when you heat emboss the outlines. So, the background is embossed in white and the butterfly is embossed in black. I experimented with embossing the background in black but it was just too dark and distracting.
The butterfly’s antennae are glued on with embroidery thread, with a little rhinestone on the tip. I had a little mental trouble with the symmetry – you’ll see in the video, lol!
Hope you’ve been well the last two weeks! I actually just got back last night, so I did this card before I left!! It has been 2 weeks with no cardmaking for me. I’m feeling very anxious to get back into my craft room. Lots of ideas running around in my head that I need to get out!
