Another Butterfly

Do you remember the song "Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative"
or something like that?

This card makes me want to sing that song.


still has a few days left.
Here's the challenge....


I have been honored to be this month's Guest Designer
and loved sharing cards with dies and punched images.


I'm entering this in....


Add Diamonds, Pearls or anything Bling
on your project!

and


ANYTHING GOES


I've used my Big Shot to die cut the Butterfly subtly embossed the negative piece
with a NBUS Papertrey Ink Impression Plate.

I adhered that over a piece of Saturated Watercolor.  
(You can see Loll's video tutorial here.)

After I spritzed the butterfly, I popped it over the negative.

Then I added the bling that's been colored with a Blendability.

Another QACAS card.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Gorgeous, Bonnie! Love the colours of your beautiful background ... and love the butterfly aperture and lacey die-cut topper. That's a great way to stretch your dies! :) We have loved having you as Guest Designer at HLS this month. Thanks so much for all you've done! xx

Love the way the butterfly is spritzed to pick up the colours in the background! Great card!

Sandy said...

Yep - I do that remember that song and I am singing it now. That's one good thing about getting older - you just forget about the negative - Of course you forget about a few other things too!!
Beautiful card!!

"And don't mess with Mr. In Between." Guess we'll all be singing today. ;) A beautiful butterfly, Bonnie. I love the green background shining through those lacy wings. The embossing on the negative really accents it positively. (Sorry couldn't resist.)

MaryH said...

Ab-SO-lutely love it! The partial die cut is gorgeous with that blaze of marbling bkground behind it. (oh yeah, find your spray starch. Not messy, but loads of fun!) Happy Wkend, and TFS - Hugs

This is beautiful Bonnie and I love the watercolour background and then the soft embossed texture on the negative butterfly topper, and the lovely blue spritzing on the butterfly itself which complements the background, and the pretty gems to finish. x
