twinkling butterfly

butterflies-1-diane-zechman.jpg  A few days ago I mentioned that I had some news and so now I’ll share that with you. I am honored to now be designing for CC Designs (All That Scraps)! This butterfly is one of Christine’s newly released images. And I will have more to share with you over the next few weeks. 🙂 I have to say that I was impressed with the deeply etched rubber and I am looking forward to working with some more ATS images!
This entire card was made with shimmery white cardstock. It is really hard to get a good pic of the shimmer without washing out some details. The butterfly was embossed with white embossing powder and watercolored with Twinkling H2O’s. Then I applied some flat backed pearls that I found at Target. I wish I had picked up more! I was hesitant, unsure of the quality. But they seem to be sticking fine so far. The diagonal striped embossing on the layer beneath the butterfly was made with the Scor-Pal. I *love* my Scor-Pal and use it on every card I make!

  7. Love that card! The white on white is stunning, and I like the way you worked the dotted ribbon through the top layer. Thanks for the reminder to use scoring in my layout–I can use the grooves in my Enveloper for that.
