Isn’t this card just beautiful?!?!?! It is so much better in person so be sure to check out the video tutorial below to take it all in! Let’s get started on this amazing card!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Butterflies Thinlits, Gold Metallic Thread, Wink of Stella, Aqua Painter

So remember last week when we die cut the white butterfly out for that beautiful card? Today we are using that white butterfly that was created with the Butterflies Thinlits! Using your Aqua Painter, you will color the butterfly with Watermelon Wonder. I started in the middle and worked my way to the tips of the wings. I got this amazing ombre look and LOVE IT!!! Just remember that each time you grab some ink, start in the middle and work your way out! Then I brushed the butterfly with the Wink Of Stella for that perfect shine! For the card, I used Tip Top Taupe for the base and added a layer of Mint Macaron (4″ x 5-1/4″). Then I took a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″) and added the splatter. I did this by squeezing the Aqua Painter a bit (just a bit) and picked up some Tip Top Taupe. I tapped the pen against my finger so it would splatter on the card. This is one of those techniques that isn’t going to be perfect. If you think you want a little more or some in a specific spot, don’t do it! 🙂 It might end up dripping too much water or just never hitting that spot. After all it is suppose to look messy! After your splatters, you are ready to add your washi tape. I used the It’s My Party Washi Tape and added some on the top left and bottom right. Then I stamped the greeting from the Greatest Greetings Stamp Set in Tip Top Taupe. Now you can add this piece to your card base. For the butterfly, I added Mini Glue Dots to the back down the middle. I wrapped some Gold Metallic Thread around 4 fingers about 10-15 times (up to you as to how much you want). I slide the thread off my fingers and twisted it in the middle into an 8 and then placed it on the Mini Glue Dots. You can add more Mini Glue Dots to the top of the thread if you need to or just add the butterfly like that to your card! LOVE IT!
