This weekend hasn’t been productive in the sense of card making or being productive. I’ve been a little under the weather with a cold and sore throat with deadlines hanging over my head so I’m taking time to rest so that I’m the best possible self. Lucky for you all I have a couple of cards ready to go!
While the card is relatively simple in design it’s super cute how the big butterfly takes centre stage. You’ve seen me used the butterfly dies befor on other cards just not this larger one. These dies are just perfect, not only do you get so many dies in the set but they can be used together or as individuals. This card actually reminds me a lot of taxidermy butterfly, not pleasant for everyone I know but it’s something I like and actually inspired this card. For Valentine’s Day I finally received a Blue Swallowtail, which is my favourite. I’m a very lucky man!
One thing that I want so is step away from the Basic Black. While it’s beautiful and super dramatic but I’ve seen so many other demonstrators create such wonderful butterflies using vellum and even just a single layer of the die and then blended out with ink. They are amazing honestly. You should surround yourself with inspiration as I try to do, I just hope I can get as amazing as some of the other demonstrators out there so you can all can grow with me.
I’m going to spend the rest of the day resting and maybe doing a little planning for the next couple of projects. I know I’m needing to make one project in particular ready for next week! I’m super excited are you?
