These are the exact colors on the butterfly as the last post...but looks totally different! I love playing with color! By using Soft Sky ink on Soft Sky cardstock, the woodgrain is soft and subtle...and the butterfly POPS!
The finished card is simple, keeping the focus on the butterfly. This Watercolor Wings Bundle is so fun to play using different color combos. I highly recommend it - add it to your collection of precious images! The Hardwood Background Stamp is perfect for nature and masculine themed cards.
Check out this AWESOME, multi-colored butterfly! It's a three-step stamp set called Watercolor Wings and I'm loving it! The BUNDLE of stamps and framelits dies $AVES 15%! The colors of this butterfly are Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, and Soft Suede.
I finished off this card with Mint Macaron 1" Dotted Lace Trim, Glimmer Paper, and Dazzling Details.
Today I have a guest creator: Janell Lewellen, my friend and very creative demonstrator from Byron, Illinois! I have never thought of a black flower, but look how very striking Janell's design is with a black flower paired with Blushing Bride cardstock!! WOW!
Notice the black leaves with clear embossing - that adds another texture. Lots of great details here!
The clothespin is even covered with designer series paper. SO SWEET for sure. Thank you for sharing, Janell!
Early June 2015, Dean and I headed north by car to visit family & friends.
Our first visit was daughter, Katie and her hubby, Tim. They took us to the CITY MUSEUM at 750 North 16th St., St. Louis, MO. In the background you see the old 10 story International Shoe Factory that houses City Museum. See the School Bus hanging over the top corner of the building? That's part of this gigantic interactive playground. A better name would be a "amusement park of unrelated recycled junk!" It's weird and fun!
On the City Museum roof, you climb UP a cage and then SLIDE DOWN right under the cage. This is Dean being a kid again! Too high for me!!!
Katie and Dean climbing into a giant cage on the roof for this picture...
A giant playground for kids of all ages! City kids can do what
country kids do - climb in barn, hop across creeks, explore caves.
Back in the building, I could not resist this silliness!
Dean had a FAT TIRE BEER to relax!
These TWIRLING, TIPPING chairs felt like you were falling over backward...then swiveled around!! GIGGLES!!!
This sign spoke to me!! We didn't have time to see everything - like the 7 story SLIDE! We highly recommend the CITY MUSEUM
