Things with wings #2

This is my second contribution to the Country View Challenges Design Team inspiration posts for this months challenge - Things With Wings. The background is one I made earlier in the week and posted up for my first Technique Tuesday post and I'm actually using the sample from that to create this card.


First I experimented with sponging more card and stamping butterflies on it but it didn't give me the elegance I wanted so I went searching in my cupboard and found some translucent papers. I took a butterfly from Tim's Watercolour stamp set and stamped the butterfly on both using quinacridone violet DecoArt media acrylic paint (the same as had been used in the background) and then cut them both out.


I mounted the background on the darker of the two papers.


I found a small greeting stamp to add the sentiment and made this into a card. 


I need to get some more things added to the Pack House space and this will do very nicely.

Thanks for stopping by.

Your card came out beautifully with the addition of that butterfly! Love that background--I had a peek at your backgrounds in my e-mail yesterday, but my computer was not loading blogs for some reason...I'm off to see the details while it's working today! I think this is going to 'fly' out of the Pack House! Hugs!
