Inspired to Die Cut


I saw this challenge last week and was very inspired by the Muse photo with the inlaid die cuts.  Life then got busy and I am scrambling to post this before the link closes! 

I am also submitting this for the SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge to make a thank you card.

Here is my card:

The background was the result of playing on watercolor paper with Twinkling H2Os, Distress Ink and finally a spritz of Distress markers.

The butterflies are from a favorite stamp and die cut set.  They were stamped on watercolor paper and Distress Ink was blended to match the background.

I mounted the sentiment on fun foam and then added the black drop shadow.

Thanks for taking a look!

Stamp:  Hero Arts/Sizzix Antique Flowers and Butterflies

Die:  My Favorite Things Many Thanks


  1. Beautiful background - I love how the blues and greens have mixed and I bet it's sparkly in real life! So glad you joined us at Muse this week, Irene!

  2. Love the background you created for this! I wish we could see what the Twinkling H20's added to the mix, it must look even lovelier in person!

  3. Pretty card with lovely colors and butterflies! Great take on the Doggy card! Thanks for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
