I guess I'll start my post with a question....is it too late to send a birthday card almost two months after someone's birthday! Do you ever do that, all of a sudden you realized you missed the day or even the month? Yikes....now what do I do...just let it continue to go by even though it's naggin' at you...or send a very belated birthday blessing...hmmmm....that is my question ~ now on to my card!
The Paper Players have a great challenge this week and I can't believe that I'm playing along ~ summer is extremely busy for me with family, gardening, visiting, camping....and sadly, I don't really get a chance to play in my studio...I'm so blessed that my garden is my other happy place!
Paper Players 62 is wanting a Birthday Card...how did they know what was tugging at my heart!
I then followed a sketch from Page Maps...and here is a picture of my card!
~ and the inside of the card ~
I created my butterfly using the 'baby wipe technique' ~ What fun...I really enjoyed this technique ~ I then laid the butterfly down on my Versa Mark Pad and inked it up, covered it with Clear EP and set it with the heat gun! Stunning!!!
I chose my colors using my color coach... I love this tool, I guess my other question to self would be....why in the world didn't I get this fabulous tool sooner! It is wonderful and a must have in my studio!
If you have any question, please don't hesitate to drop me a line! Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day and enjoy your weekend! It is beautiful and very summery (is that a word?) here in Winnipeg!
Enjoy this day!
