I think of Be Happy and automatically think theres going to be a bee card but no, not today. My Be Happy is just because I am trying to remember to use things I have. I have this 'Be' die and it never gets used and of course it goes with so many words I have in die cuts so I need to remember but for today its 'Be Happy' time.
I am also trying again to do more sketches. I see them, write the details down then always take too long thinking about them so am going to try doing them when I see them. Anyway this card was inspired by the Paper Players Card Challenge Sketch so I hope I have followed it properly.
I made the background piece previously and love the colours. Distress inks squished onto my craft mat water added then my watercolour cardstock squished into paint, lifted dried squished again added some liquid gold and sprayed, dried and there you go. cut with a stitched die cut. Check out the sparkle. The butterfly is die cut in white cardstock swiped with versamark ink
then gold embossed three times, wings and body. Solid body cut from gold vellum.
Be and 'happy' sentiments cut from black card stock and left the extra on the happy which cuts attached to the cardstock so that it followed the design of the sketch. Finished off with a couple of
sequins on the watercolour panel. As they were added to a pale yellow cardbase I add a white interior for people to be able to write comments on.
I'm hoping that it doesnt matter that I haven't stamped. I have inked and heat embossed
and die cut but not stamped.
Loved making the watercolour panel and the gold heat embossed
butterfly even if it did take three layers to meet my expectations.
Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
