Jamie started by cutting our Flower #5 and 2 Part Butterfly from a piece of watercolor paper and did NOT remove the die cuts from the paper when done. This is to hold these pieces in place to make her pretty watercolor blending so much easier.

To create that soft, autumnal glow on her die cut details, Jamie gently rubbed some distress inks over them and then used a wet paintbrush to create all that soft blended look that only looks like it took forever to achieve.

Next Jamie laid our Cheesecloth Stencil over a piece of white card stock and appliked some Moss Color Fuse Ink from Set #10 through it but not evenly. This created that pretty look of depth and light on the background. She trimmed that piece down to card layer size and adhered it to a green card base.

Now she added her die cut details She gently bent the detail layer of the butterfly die cut to raise the wings slightly from the body and adhered this with adhesive in the center only to the butterfly base.

She arranged that and her leaf detail on her card and when satisfied, adhered them to her stenciled background.

Since Jamie chose to turn this into a Get Well card, she chose a sentiment from our Kittie Says Phrases #1 set and stamped it with VersaMark onto a scrap of black card stock and heat embossed it with white powder. She trimmed it into a little banner style strip and adhered it with dimensional adhesive to her card. A few Fern Green liquid pearls here and there and some gems on the body of her butterfly and her card was finished!
