Western Fence & Butterflies
Other Supplies: Canson Watercolor Paper, Memento Inks, Martha Stewart butterfly punches, Lindy’s Starburst Color Shots, half pearls, Pro Marker, glue Sticky Doos, Scor-Tape, design paper, Ranger Distress Inks
Instructions: Card Size 5 1/2" X 5 1/2"
Make card base out of watercolor paper for stability. Cut a piece of design paper 1/8” smaller and tape to the card base. Use the Labels dies and cut a frame by laying one inside the other and running through the Grand Calibur; use distress inks to go around the edges of the frame and set aside. Next I stamped the images onto watercolor paper and colored with distress inks. I used the dies to cut out the wagon wheel and the rope elements. I used the foam to pop the frame off the image and then I taped the rope to the top of the frame. I leaned the wagon wheel into the fence post and used the foam pieces to support it. Next I stamped the flowers and leaves and cut them out. I glued two of the flowers together to form the flower I wanted. I used a foam piece to place one of the flowers down on the image and then glued the other flower to the frame, placing the leaves where I wanted them I then glued them down. Next I stamped the butterfly image and used the color shots to paint then when dry I cut it out and glued to the upper corner of the frame. The other butterflies were then punched and dipped in one of the color shots to add color and shine. I colored the pearls with the Pro Marker and glued them to the butterflies. The butterflies were then glued to the piece. And finally, tape the framed image to the base card.
