Butterfly Anniversary

Good morning! Stopping by with a card I made a little while ago as a special request for a friend. It was for a 75th Anniversary, and needed to have coral and teal and butterflies on it. I was flipping through what I had looking for a good butterfly image, when I found this one from Unity - only it had an extra butterfly over the heart. An anniversary card with three butterflies just seemed weird, so I was going to move on, when my daughter asked why I didn't just take that butterfly off! Brilliant! A bit of masking later, and it was a perfect image!

I used watercolors to color in the image - layered color on for lots of pretty texture and adding splatters, then added Glossy Accents over the butterflies - that was totally the right way to embellish them - they just pop off the card!

Added a jute twine bow, popped it up with foam over a woodgrain paper layer, and that was that!

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
