Jeanne here today! There’s something about bright, bold colors that just makes me happy. Today I’m sharing this butterfly card on a rainbow background.
I’m a big fan of Distress Ink, and when the Distress Oxide was released a while back, it took me a while to catch on to the trend. It’s biggest advantage in my opinion is it’s creamy texture and blendability.
I inked up a panel of white card stock with Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Spiced Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet. I splattered the panel with water and then with some Dr. Ph. Martins Bleed Proof White Ink.
I topped the panel with the Triangle Fade Frame cut from white card stock. I love the fresh triangles and the gradient pattern.
I stamped the butterfly from the Close to the Heart Stamp set with Memento Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut a second butterfly from gold glitter paper. I created a U shaped fold down the center of the colored butterfly the size of the black card stock body. This allowed me to adhere the butterfly under this area and made it possible to fold the wings.
Wishing you a bright beautiful day!

WOW Jeanne this is gorgeous! I am with you…I LOVE COLOUR! It can be bright colours, pastels or earthy colours, (seems to depend on the day) but most of the time, the brighter the better.
Rainbow ‘anything’ is ALWAYS a good thing.
Very well done and the butterfly is amazing!
