The Path

Another card I did for my Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers last Monday. I embossed my butterflies using gold embossing powder and painted using Winsor Newton watercolour paints. I stamped the middle butterly and die cut before painting, then styled it before attaching. Under the butterfly I layered with gold glitter paper. I did a watercolour wash for my butterfly background in light pink tones, and embossed with Darice Crackle embossing folder, then matted with a pale pink. A few sequins and some crystals finished this card, which I really like. I had a doctors appointment yesterday so I took it for the nurse to send to someone. She is always so thrilled to get my cards and I love it when I give a smile.
