butterfly collection

Have been home a few days now from another trip! When I returned my new Simon Says Stamp card kit for June was awaiting me!! So I pulled it out and created a couple of cards with it!! This first card here is actually my second attempt…I added a few more colours of ink to it and used one size of the rose instead of 2 like the bottom card!! I love how the colours flow into one another! 

This card is this week Clean and Simple card, you can see I did a softer pallet with less colours. At first I wasn't a fan but it grew on me so I went with it!!

For both the cards I heat embossed the rose patter on the water colour card stock. First card is just one size and the FTL card has both rose sizes on it. After I heat embossed it I rubbed distress ink onto my craft matt and sprayed it with water then added the card front to it. The first card I twisted it around a bit where as the second card I just laid it down and left it that way. Did both just to see what I liked better! They are both nice but for different reasons I guess! Once the paper was dry I took a scrap piece of paper and a hot iron to remove the embossed areas. First time for me using this technique…I enjoyed it seeing as I wasn't to sure how to stamp the sentiment directly onto to the card front instead of having it be a banner of some sort! 

These water colour techniques are so fun to do and give such a fun look to a card with very minimal effort!! 

Hope you enjoy! Thanks so much fro stopping by!
