Hi Friends! It’s EK, and I am popping in today to share a new card I crafted using some long neglected crafting supplies and A Way with Words Butterfly Flourish. I just love how elegant the flourishes of this die set make creating something special so simple.
Step One: On a crafting mat or glass, drop three similar liquid watercolors. I used Dr. Ph Martins Hydrus (just unearthed from my moving boxes) in two shades of red and one dark pink.
Step Two: Spray the liquid watercolor with plenty of water.
Step Three: Dip a piece of Watercolor Paper into the liquid watercolor and completely saturated with color. I was able to get three dips out of the puddle.
Step Four: Heat set the watercolor paper. Then spray with a iridescent watercolor spray. I used Perfect Pearls Mists.
Step Five: Die cut the watercolor paper using the Butterfly Flourish die set. I used just the large flourish once and the small flourish twice for this step.
Step Six: Add a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the watercolor paper. Die cut the detailed butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set.
Step Seven: Peel off the backing paper to the Clear Double Sided Adhesive and add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the detailed butterfly.
Step Eight: On a second piece of watercolor paper, die cut a frame using both the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Fitted Indented Rectangle die set.
Step Nine: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut frame to an A2 card frame. Using a combination of 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, add the flourished butterfly. Using Kids Kids Choice Glue add the glittered butterfly to the flourished butterfly.
Step Ten: Add a sentiment using the Love & Hearts Collection stamp set and two tones of ink. I used both Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries Distress Oxide.
Step Eleven: Adhere the two smaller butterfly flourishes. Add three drops of Pearl Rose Craft Drops and three drops of Transparent Crystal Craft Drops.
I love how this is a surprising simple this card was to create but how elegant it looks.
