At this month’s Technique Time Class, one of the projects we created was this fun Bubble Technique Card with the wildly popular Butterfly Friendship Stamp Set.
I started by selecting a design/pattern for my card. Knowing that the sentiments in this Butterfly Friendship Stamp Set were small, I wanted something that would work with that. Enter in my well-loved and often used Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 Card Pattern Guide. Pattern 20 in this Guide was perfect!
I also wanted to use some of the paper from the Mix-in Collection since many times it is overshadowed by the main 4 paper collections.
The card came together really well. I love the pop of color that the Nectarine ink gave to the butterfly–especially with the Black and Sapphire tones. Plus, adding the Black Shimmer Brush to the butterfly’s body was a beautiful touch. I also added some Clear Shimmer Brush to the dark tones of the butterfly’s wing. Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t really show off the shimmery beauty of it though.
The final touch to this card was adding a Vellum Stitched Circle–sort of ties in with the bubbles from the custom created paper. It’s a subtle addition but one that does help draw the eye to the focal point of the butterfly.
