Butterfly Wishes

Hello and Welcome
Meet today's card.
A simple one with a bit of a twist.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I placed the Butterfly Mask from A Colorful Life Designs over my cardstock and grabbed some Distress Oxide inks.
  • Using my TE Blending Brushes, I started at the center of the butterfly and rubbed on some Mustard Seed DOX ink.  I kept blending using Carved Pumpkin and then finally some Picked Raspberry DOX ink. 
  • When I was happy with all the inking, I decided to add a twist.......and cut it out!  I don't usually cut my stencil pieces out but this one worked perfectly for that.  It was super easy to cut out too.
  • I placed the butterfly into my Misti, stamped the sentiment with some black Versafine Clair and clear heat embossed it.
  • Next, I cut my card base from white cardstock, added a pink border and then pop dotted my butterfly to a piece of white and glued that to the card.
  • I added 3 little pearls for the finishing touch.

Here is the mask I used:
