Three Butterfly Cards (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles.

I made three Butterfly Cards using gorgeous Jane's Doodles 'Butterflies' stamp set. These were birthday cards for my mom, aunt and my boyfriend's mom.

I cut three panels from a watercolor paper and heat embossed butterflies on them. I colored backgrounds in watercoloring technique with a lot of water and Dusty Concord Distress Ink, and splattered panels with same color and white acrylic paint mixed with water. After drying, I drew few white dots with Unibal Signo White, because white splatters were barely visible. I glued panels on white card bases and my three cards were finished. :o)

Each card measures 107 mm x 138 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
