Butterfly Heart

butterfly pop out heart Heather Telford

If you have visited the Penny Black blog lately you will know about the new Follow Your Heart release, if not I will be sharing some of new dies and stamps over there and here on my blog this week. Because the butterfly heart pop out die only partially cuts the butterflies you can fold up the wings to reveal whatever is underneath. I tossed up whether to cut the heart out of the watercolour panel or white but decided to have the watercolour panel peeping through the wings and framing the heart. I painted the gradated panel with yellow, pink then blue blending each colour into the one beside it. I attached the coloured panel to a linen textured white panel and cut the heart out of the same textured white cardstock.

Butterfly pop ups Heather Telford

I bent all the butterfly wings up before gluing the heart onto the watercolour panel so I wouldn’t accidentally glue any wings flat. Once the heart was firmly attached I glued a seed pearl in the centre of each butterfly and attached the whole panel to a white card base. If I were to mail this one I would probably need a box-type envelope so I think it might end up being a hand delivered card.

Supplies:

Die:   Butterfly Heart Pop Out (PB)
Paints: Peerless watercolors
Cardstock:  hot pressed watercolour paper, neenah solar white, textured white
Also: white seed pearls

    The watercoloured panel sets off the butterfly panel perfectly! As do the pearls you’ve so carefully added.

    This dimensional butterfly heart looks so pretty with your beautiful background Heather and the added pearls on each of the butterflies gives it a really elegant finish. x
