Here’s my take:

©Candles in the Garden. RIC 56. Spray misted background and stamped butterflies.

As with a lot of my cards, I tend to create more than one background panel just in case something doesn’t turn out how I thought it would…that was the case here. The panel on the card was my last attempt out of three, believe it or not! I misted three pieces of white cardstock with a mixture of homemade sprays and Dylusions, heat set and put to one side.

I might share the other two ‘experiments’ some day, but for this card, I brought out every single butterfly stamp that I own and stamped onto the misted panel with Jet Black Archival Ink. I tried to be as symmetrical as possible, just like the pattern on the skirt…

I die-cut the Memory Box Vivienne butterfly from the panel giving me an aperture for creating a shaker card. I did this by creating a pocket out of some left over stamp packaging and filling with a few metallic turquoise sequins. The whole panel was then foam mounted to a white card base.

I embellished with a few more of those sequins on the front of the card along with a sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Many Thanks stamp set, which was heat embossed in black on some orange vellum.
