We fly home from our month in England today. By the time you are reading this we will be sitting in our recliners, trying to keep our eyes open as we cope with the jetlag from the flight back home.
This is the last and my personal favourite of all the cards I made in July, up at the lake. I really managed to use up quite a few of the teensy Prima flowers... only 7 zillion left to go...lol
I made a little mistake on this card...I over generously dabbed the cream paint on the Spellbinders fancy label. It was so whitish that the butterfly did not stand out. I had one die cut left so I repeated the process and tried to be a bit more stingy with the paint. Rather than throw out the extra whitewashed die cut, I layered it under the correct version, giving the look of a bit of a shadow. I pop dotted the correct one forward and I am really happy with how it looks now. I have included a couple of closeup so you can see the layers up close.
