May PTI Blog Hop

Awesome inspiration this month!


I knew right away what I wanted to do. I took a piece of watercolor paper and made watercolored splotches of different hues, kind of following the arrangement in the photo. Once it was dry, I embossed silver dots, and then cut it out with the Bitty Butterflies coverplate.  I used a second white coverplate cut out, and attached it to Stormy Sea card base.  I then adhered the butterflies just in the center, so I could pop them out on the sides.  The sentiment is from Keep it Simple Birthday stamped in Stormy Sea, and I added some sequins for a finishing touch.


 I love how this turned out! (Is that okay to say?)  Thanks for great inspiration this month! Enjoy hopping everyone!

I love this, Luanne! I don't have that cover plate, but I might try a similar design with a single butterfly die. The watercolors are so pretty.
