Grateful Bunch Spritzed Watercolour Butterfly Card

by Joanne James26. April 2016 19:00

Today I'm sharing the second of my technique class cards with you, featuring the Grateful Bunch stamp set:

This card features the butterfly and lace panel from the stamp set and was inspired by the sample in the seasonal catalogue. Here's the low-down on today's card:

Two of Three Curvy Corners - I created a layered bookmark-style panel on my card featuring the soon-to-be retired Curvy Corner Trio Punch. This versatile punch adds a beautiful decorative finish to the corners of my panel; in order to allow the top corners to be shown to full effect, I trimmed away the corners of the watercolour layer using my 1 1/4" circle punch.

Watercolour Butterflies - I stamped each of the butterflies in turn, spritzing the inked stamp with a fine mist of water before stamping onto the watercolour paper panel to create the washed watercolour look. The trick is to use a bright colour and not to over-spritz to get a good quality image.

Lovely Lace - I added a Pool Party tone-on-tone lace border to my base card along the edge of my raised panel, along with some metallic gold thread for just a hint of luxe.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

I designed this card with my class ladies in mind, all of whom love the versatility of the Curvy Corner Trio Punch. A couple of them are avid scrapbookers and love that they can 'pretty' their scrapbook pages with it, as well a create fancy inserts and mats and layers for cards. 

That's all from me today; I'll be back tomorrow with another project. until then, happy stampin'!
