woodgrain buttERfly

Well, I had a heck of a day yesterday. I ended up in the ER with abdominal pain. They did a million tests and everything is okay, which is good, but I still don’t feel very well. I am so frustrated this happened on my second week of my new job. Ugh!

Anyways, I decided to post tonight because this blog makes me happy, and I need some happy! So, here I go!

I am in love with this butterfly stamp from Basic Grey. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
I used green stickles for the butterfly’s trail, and the happy birthday is from a PTI set.
I colored in the butterfly with copics, cut him out, and then smeared liquid pearls all over the cut out. It makes the butterfly look pearlescent. It is the coolest technique that I saw on Jennifer McGuire’s blog
I made the woodgrain “frame” by cutting a piece of computer paper to the size I wanted, putting removable adhesive on it, and adhering it to the middle of the card. Then I stamped my CHF woodgrain backgrounder, lifted off the computer paper, and voila, a woodgrain frame! I saw that technique on Kristina Werner’s blog.

I popped up the butterfly on foam adhesive for extra dimension. I really like how this card turned out, and it was really fun for me to use two techniques that I had seen on videos that week. I am hoping to make some more videos soon. I am in withdrawal! Too much work + too much sick = a unhappy crafty kelly. Let’s hope all is back in order by the end of the week!
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
kelly marie
