Blue Butterfly

This is a card I made a while ago but never posted so I had to think hard to remember the process I used to make it.  I started with a rectangular panel probably with no intention of chopping it up but you know how these things develop. There are some shadowy butterflies crossing the panel which were embossed in clear first and some grey butterflies under all the sponging also. The sponging was done in a grey blue and a brilliant blue and the Letter Background stamped in grey. I inked the main butterfly with markers. After slicing the panel into squares I popped them up on a blue panel and trimmed the white card base to fit; it is a little thinner than a regular card size.

Have a great week.

    You went to a lot of trouble to put this card together, but it was really worth it. The colors just jump out at you. And breaking this into squares really gives it extra interest. Also, I’m glad you didn’t cut the squares so that the butterfly was alone in one square. I like him spread among a few! The shades of blue and grey are really beautiful together. Lovely card!

    Wow, very pretty! I like the subtle background butterflies and the effect from cutting into smaller panels.

    Just stunning! It’s seemed to me butterflies have outgrown their welcome, but you’ve given this one a whole new life.

    perfect again!

    I love the ethereal look you’ve achieved with this Heather. Whenever I do a grid layout like this one, it’s usually because I’m rescuing something that didn’t work out!
