Bold Butterfly (by Asha)

Good morning, friends. I'm back with another butterfly project for you. This time around I made a one-layer birthday card.

I started by heat embossing the largest butterfly from the Patchwork Butterfly A4 sheet with WOW Gold Rich EP directly onto the card base. The I added colour to it using Distress Inks: Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade.

Next, I worked on the background by blending Distress Inks in shades of green: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles. Then I sprinkled some watered down Dina Wakley White Gesso to add interest to the background. I also added random blobs of Icicle Stickles for a touch of magic.

And finally, the greeting from Words To Dazzle and Sparkle stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

As always, I have details of the tools and products used on my blog. Thank you for stopping by and drop in soon for more designs by the team.



  1. Very pretty, looks almost translucent.

  2. Fabulous. I really like the idea of not using the whole butterfly and the colours work so well.

  3. I adore the colour combination Asha and the beautiful butterfly shines brightly. x

  4. Zo sunny, somerly and beautiful!
