I needed a couple of gifts for dear friends that are retiring and only had a short time to come up with an idea. I decided to give them each a box of my handmade cards and made a pretty box to put them in! I love how it turned out and hope they do, too.
The card was made to go with the colors of the box. I stamped the image in Intense Black Exclusive Inks. I knew I'd be using a water brush and needed a colorfast ink. I colored with Watercolor Pencils and blended with a Water Brush.
The ink behind the sentiment is 2nd generation Wild Berry. To do this you ink your stamp, stamp it on scrap paper then stamp on your project.
The butter fly is the smaller one from the Thin Cut dies. Both butterflies have their top layer cut from Vellum. The other layers are from the Wild Berry Blast Paper Packet and Wild Berry Blast Coordinating Cardstock.
