Spring has finally made it’s way to Wyoming and the flowers are coming upa nd trees are starting to pop! I actually saw a beautiful Monarch butterfly and these cards were inspired by that butterfly.
To create these cards i started with a stencil and some Distress sprays. I sprayed the stencil and used it to stamp the background using one color and then a contrasting color.
If you don’t have distress Spray you can use Distress Ink, Just rub the stencil until it’s covered and give it a quick spray with water.
The chipboard pieces were inked with chalk ink and to embellish them i added a flat back pearl to the centers.
To embellish these cards I added some flowers and twine and crystal hearts, die cut a lacy border and layered it under the background.
I hope you will give these fun techniques a try and as always,
Thanks for stopping by the Creative Embellishments blog!
