Butterflies - I LOVE butterflies

Today I'm sharing a couple quick and easy card made with the Beautiful Day butterflies and some of Stampin' Up! Blends.  I just love coloring with blends - the name says it all - they are alcohol markers and the colors blend together so beautifully!

The other thing I love about them, is that you can color our clear Gems and White Pearls with the blends to make them match your project.  You can see the purple gems, and the peach colored pearls on these pictures.  Makes the embellishments so much more versatile. When I use blends, I stamp my image first with Memento ink, making sure it is completely dry, and then color away.  Everyone has their technique, but I do light all over - dark where I want it, then light to blend the edges where the colors come together. Works for me!
After everything was colored - I used another favorite product - Wink of Stella and went over each butterfly a couple times to give it that amazing sparkle.  Clean, Simple, Beautiful cards - what could be better!  ~Maureen
