Metallic watercolour and a butterfly

Hello Friends, 

how are you?

For today's card, I created a striped panel with metallic watercolours, in a rose gold shade. Since I thought that was a bit busy for a full background, I used only a strip of it and added a white panel with a scalloped edge on top with foam adhesive. 

Then I coloured my butterfly with my regular watercolour set, blending pink and grey into each other. 
Since the colour had muted my lines and I already had removed the stamp from my stamping tool, I had to channel my inner Kelly and outline everything. Then I cut out the image and adhered only the body to a grey circle so, the wings can fly up.

I am still struggling where to put a sentiment and in which way. I might leave it as it is. Any suggestions are welcome, since I have been pondering this for over a week now.

Have a beautiful day

Simon says Stamp: Anything goes


  1. Another beautiful butterfly card, Ela. Colours are so soft and pretty Amazing job watercolouring the stripe background... I thought it was patterned paper.

    As for your sentient... I’m a big fan of white heat embossing them on black. This way you can test where to put it before adhering.

  2. Das sieht umwerfend schön aus, Streifen und Schmetterling bilden eine tolle Harmonie. Manchmal muss eine Karte gar keinen Schriftzug haben. Oder Du lässt sie so, bist Du weißt für wen und zu welchem Anlass Du sie verschenken möchtest, dann kommt die Idee zum Schriftzug von ganz allein.
