This is the first of a couple of butterfly cards that I've crafted for a colleague who is going through a really challenging time at the moment.
The card base is Studio G. The image is Creative Expressions Majestic Monarch die cut from a piece of glossy paper smooshed with a variety of Ranger alcohol ink. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Wetlands stamped in Midnight Muse. The embellishments are Recollections Rhinestone Stickers.
There were a couple of alcohol smooshed papers that left a little to be desired. That said, I've learned that with the right die cut and a few embellishments, they can still work extraordinarily well. Case in point. This die cut is utterly amazing! I didn't bother with any background stamps or papers because it would only distract from this great butterfly. I want to say that the embellishments are an off shade of pink but there seem to have hints of ivory/beige that make them not as pink as you'd think. They work perfectly with this particularly bizarre smooshed paper.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
